Dance Introductory Levels (3-6 years)

Dance Introductory Levels (3-6 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.

Through the art of dance, we teach children coordination, creativity, confidence, responsibility, friendship, & socialization skills, as well as an appreciation and understanding of the arts.

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.

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