Dance

Let the dancer in you shine! The YMCA offers quality, affordable dance classes for budding performers. Explore the joys and benefits of music and movement with us.  


Y dance programs allow children to explore the world of dance in a positive and affordable way. Dancers strengthen key skills, such as coordination, balance, flexibility and strength, in a non-competitive and nurturing environment.  We welcome children of all abilities and levels in both our weekday and weekend classes.  Financial assistance is available to ensure that children of all backgrounds can dance.  We even offer a dance shoe donation/rental program.  

Each dance program culminates in a recital.  There are no additional recital or costume fees to participate and it's free for all familiy and friends to attend.
