Youth Dance


We offer dance classes for various ages and skill levels, so whether you or your little dancer are a beginner or a pro, you can learn it all. Our goal is to provide youth with opportunities to focus, develop new skills, and most of all, have fun!

The fall session runs 11/1 to 12/18, with no classes the week of 11/22 due to holiday (6-weeks); see specific dates/times below. Member registration for classes is now open! Non-member registration starts 10/25. Questions? Contact Flora Dewar, our Youth & Family Coordinator at dance@gbymca.org or 862-9622 x158.

Note:  Due to the fact that the youth participating in this program are largely ineligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, all youth participants and accompanying adults will be required to wear a mask. This will help protect this unvaccinated population and will mirror the protocol that they follow during their school day. We appreciate your cooperation!
