Youth Activities

We believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.  Sometimes kids want a break from sports while still having a safe and fun experience with other kids.  The Y is now offering more opportunities for youth to get together to play, learn, and grow with each other.

ART AT THE Y
Inspire your child with art. The Y is now offering art classes where kids will have fun learning new skills and developing their creativity. Each session offered will be on a different element of art. Kids will learn basics and build on their skills while creating a portfolio of their work that they can share it with friends and family. Art supplies will be provided for them during class.

BITTY & BEGINNING BALLET
Does your little one love to dance? Introduce your child to the art of ballet! The Y is excited to now offer Bitty & Beginning Ballet. This class will be a 6 week session that will introduce students to ballet exercises, positions, rhythm, and expression. Participants will also learn a dance to present to their parents for the final class. Ballet slippers recommended, tutus encouraged!

FAMILY NIGHTS
