DanceDANCE

Introducing young children to the wonder and delight of dance in a structured setting.

The Morrison Y and the Ballantyne Arts Center offer a wide range of dance classes for ages 1 to 18, and at any level of ability. From hip-hop to tap and ballet to contemporary, our classes combine movement with creative expression and inspire dancers develop a personal enjoyment for art and culture. Beginning with fundamentals and progressively moving toward advanced principles, dancers build confidence in expressing themselves and strengthening their bodies.
