Dance

Let’s Dance! The YMCA of Michiana has a variety of classes that teach the FUNdamentals of dance.

BEGINNER BALLET: AGES 3-6

Students will learn the basics of ballet as we discover movements, techniques and combinations of the dance through fun games and exercises, along with floor exercises.

BALLET II: AGES 6-8

Students will continue to build upon rhythm and coordination skills while incorporating more difficult movement. There will be an increase in ballet vocabulary and the class will alternate between center and barre work. Stretching, strengthening and floor exercises are incorporated. Along with expanded vocabulary, this class places an emphasis on musicality and its movement application. Students will practice dancing alone, with a partner, as a group, and for each other while having fun and building self-confidence.

JAZZ: AGES 7-12

Jazz has American roots. Jazz is a hybrid of several dance forms and is driven by popular music and culture. Jazz incorporates issolations of the torso and head as well as arms and legs.
