Dance is a great way for kids to get active and express themselves creatively.  Ballet classes at the YMCA allow students to discover the basics and beauty of ballet in a safe, fun, social atmosphere.  From the first plié to the final performance, dancers of all skill levels will enjoy taking ballet at the Y. Students will learn age-appropriate dance techniques of ballet at the barre, including basic positions, arm, hand and leg movements, good posture, and more. Dancers of all skill levels are always welcome to join ballet classes at the Y!
