Dance Program

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

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 3-7 on Saturday mornings. 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.
