Youth Dance

Dance as Art


Dance is an art form that develops athleticism, coordination, agility, balance, and self-expression. The benefits of dance are many. Dance can spark a child's imagination and nurtures individual creativity in a unique way. 

Young dancers discover their potential for communicating through movement as they progress through each session. 

Classes are held at the Hubbard Arts Center, 309 N. Woodlawn, unless otherwise noted.
