The Metrowest YMCA is excited to announce our collaboration with Metrowest Dance Academy to bring safe, professional and quality dance training to your child!

Metrowest Dance Academy is a Royal Academy of Dance registered school located in Framingham. We are excited to be partnering with Metrowest YMCA to bring engaging, professional and quality dance training to your child! Our teachers are trained in the ‘how’ to teach dance and classes are developmentally appropriate, full of creativity and use of imagination. At the YMCA we will teach pre-ballet, ballet, tap and jazz to ages 3-6 on Saturday mornings.
At Metrowest Dance Academy we are passionate about teaching dance!  We know that teaching with the development and enjoyment of each student in mind is going to help them grow into confident, fit, and happy people. The program is directed by Gemma Williams, Director of Metrowest Dance Academy. Gemma is a graduate of The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), London (UK) served as Asst Professor at Boston Conservatory at Berklee for five years and as tutor for the RAD she has trained ballet teachers throughout the USA for the past 9 years.
