Gymnastics and Dance

From tumbling to gymnastics, dance to cheer, the Y provides programs that build poise, confidence and discipline while never losing sight of fun! Our classes focus on teaching individual skills and developing well-rounded fundamentals.

Our gymnastics programs begin as early as 12 months old as a parent-child class, and continue through preschool, progressive, and even competitive levels. Some Y’s even offer gymnastics specifically for boys!

The Y offers the latest moves in dance for those who’ve got the fever! Whether your child prefers tap, ballet, jazz, hip hop or another genre, dance allows kids to exercise in a fun, nurturing environment.

Gymnastics and dance offers many positive physical benefits and improves confidence and self-esteem!
