Youth Dance

Creativity + Expression

Dance is a great way for kids to get active and express themselves creatively! Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and encouraging environment for kids to build confidence and make new friends.

The 7-week winter session of Youth Dance + Sports programs runs 1/3 to 2/20. Early registration for Members opens on Monday, December 6, non-member registration opens on Monday, December 13.

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