Program Description
The Y-Dance program undergoes changes as the numbers, needs, and desires of its dancers continue to grow forward. Whether the goal is to dance at a recreational level “just for fun” or for those who foresee themselves on dance teams, in musical theatre, undertaking auditions, or who want to take dance to a higher level, Y-Dance has something for everyone. Beginning in 2003 with three classes and 16 dancers Y-Dance has now grown to over 350 students.

The Y-Dance philosophy is:
To provide an atmosphere of discipline and structure
To make each dancer feel loved, valued, and empowered
To be fun, enjoyable, and a learning experience
To enhance dancers’ coordination, dance, creativity, and memory skills
If you do not know which class is for you/your child, please phone the YWCA at 742-0075 and Y-Dance Director, Hannah Walters, will help you determine where to begin.
