Dance Progressive Levels (6-18 years)

Dance Progressive Levels (6-18 years)

Dance at the Y is an opportunity to explore the joy of movement and expression in an encouraging environment! Our dedicated instructors will guide students through classes that build a solid foundation of technique, performance skills, and self-confidence.

We offer a variety of styles for dancers of all abilities, ages 3 through adult. Students must meet minimum age requirements in the first week of class.

Most students have the opportunity to participate in the Holiday Dance Recital and Spring Student Performance, with some non-recital classes being available as well. There are opportunities for the committed dancer to participate in our performance groups: Allegro All-Stars, Y We Dance Ensemble, and Encore Performance Group. Auditions for these groups are held annually.

NEW for FALL 2021: All recital classes will have a one-time nonrefundable costume fee due in full at the time of registration.

A $5.00 non-refundable fee will be applied to any program canceled by the participant.
