The Suffern branch of the YMCA has a well-established non-competitive dance program offering classes in Creative Ballet, Tap, Classical Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Gymnastics Tumbling. We offer classes for children as young as 2 1/2 years through high school. Students will have the opportunity to perform in our annual spring recital held at Rockland Community College.
We provide a nurturing environment where children will learn to appreciate dance as a lifelong activity for self-expression, grace, strength, agility, creativity, and balance. Our teachers are highly qualified and care about the development of the whole person-mind, body, spirit- through dance. Consider enrolling your son or daughter in dance classes at the Suffern branch of the YMCA.
The Y has expanded it's offerings at Suffern to include new programs beyond dance. We now offer Glee Club and Rumble Tumble fitness program. To learn more about these programs Click Here for more details.
