Program Description

The Y-Dance program undergoes changes as the numbers, needs, and desires of its dancers continue to grow. 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. Our philosophy is:

To provide an atmosphere of discipline and structure

To make each dancer feel loved, valued, and empowered

To be a fun, enjoyable, and learning experience

To enhance dancers’ coordination, dance, creativity, and memory skills

YWCA Y-Dance Testimonials 2014

My YWCA had been a place where my girls have learned that hard work and perseverance really pays off.   It has made them stronger dancers all while having fun, making new friends, and participating in the most amazing dance recitals!
Kelly Penquite

When I moved to the Lafayette area 15 years ago, the YWCA became my second home. Through its many programs, it nurtured not only myself but three young children. Our family made lifelong friends and created lasting memories from participating in its many programs. When we walked through the door, the staff would greet us by name making us feel part of the YWCA family. Now my youngest daughter has been in the Y Dance program which is an extension of the YWCA philosophy of promoting a family like atmosphere. My daughter has developed not only a love and discipline for dance technique and skill, but has excelled in a loving and encouraging environment by its wonderful and talented teachers. This program is yet another testament to the YWCA commitment to its community.
Monique Noll

My YWCA means my daughters have a wonderful place to dance! My YWCA offers us a supportive and caring staff with knowledgable and talented dance instructors!
Kathy Klingerman 

My YWCA is where my daughter has been taking dance lessons since she was four years old.  She is now 14 and has developed into a beautiful dancer!  She continues to take classes and is also working with younger dancers at the YWCA as a dance assistant. 
Natalie Baker
