Due to COVID-19 precautionary measures we have postponed the dance programs. Keep an eye on this page for updates on NEW dance dates.

The YMCA is where most children receive their first experience with ballet, jazz, and hip hop in a supportive environment. We will continue to be that place to nurture the potential of children and provide opportunities for fitness, balance, and fun. Thank you for your patience during this time.

 

EXPLORE MOVEMENT

Dance and creative movement classes are a great way for your child to explore dance, movement and develop coordination. Participants will learn the fundamentals of dance, how to control their body movements and have a greater awareness of rhythms and music with a performance at the end of session.

Each session culminates in a recital.

Each class is designed to allow your child to learn, create, explore, and develop new skills. 
These classes will showcase ballet, jazz, hip hip, contemporary dance and more!

All dance classes will hold an end of the session performance, complete with their class routine and costumes that are included in the class fee. Classes are divided by age groups.

*Fee includes cost of recital costumes. This $20 costume fee is non-refundable.

Gymnastics/Dance Combo

This class will give your child a taste of both gymnastics and ballet in a fun, supportive environment. 

*Fees include cost of recital costumes. Costume fee is non-refundable.
