Through our dance teams, kids have a chance to further develop dance techniques while training as a team to compete in several dance competitions during the school year, as well as perform at other Y events. Auditions are held the first week of class to ensure dancers are on the appropriate team.

Dance Team runs September - June. Registration closes at the beginning of October.
