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.
Y-Dance philosophy is:
To provide an atmosphere of
discipline and structure
To make each dancer feel loved, valued,
To be fun, enjoyable, and a learning
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. WE WELCOME YOU!
