Dance, Gymnastics & Theater Summer 2022
Enrolling a child in dance/gymnastics has a positive outcome in various elements of their lives. All children enrolled in the program will gain a better understanding of dance/gymnastics technique though movement, coordination, strength, balance, and flexibility exercises. Children will learn basic life skills, improve mental and physical health, learn about leadership and being a team player; all while gaining confidence, independence, and socialization skills along the way.
Attire: Dancers and gymnasts can come to class in whatever they feel most comfortable and confident to move in. Leotards and tights are equally as acceptable and a tank top and shorts. We want each child to feel confident in themselves so they can get the most out of class.
Ballet – pink ballet shoes
Tap – black tap shoes
Jazz – tan slip on jazz shoe
Hip Hop – any type of sneaker
Gymnastics, Music and Me – barefoot
*All shoes can be purchased directly through Amazon or Target.
No specific brand or style is needed.
Safety: Safety is a number our number one in class priority. Dancers will be taught the proper way to go about technique in both dance and gymnastics to provide a foundation for dance and overall health. For the safety of all dancers and gymnasts, Slate Belt YMCA has professional grade sprung flooring in their dance studio.
