Dance classes at Hamilton YMCA are designed to maximize the potential of every dancer!
YMCA classes are child-centered and we provide dancers of any age, experience, or ability the opportunity to express themselves within a fun, safe and caring environment under the guidance of fully trained instructors.
All classes put an emphasis on developing creativity, musicality, confidence in performance and technical skills that transfer into many other sports and physical disciplines.
Dancers perform frequently at our end of term showcase and receive individualised feedback to record their progress.
Perfect for preschool and school aged children to get their creativity flowing, using a variety of dance equipment form ribbons, bells and hoops to name but a few! This class gives an overall introduction into multiple disciplines and genres of dance styles.
We are committed to providing our community with easy access to high quality instruction at an affordable price and we don’t require a uniform or performance related fees.
Hamilton dance also provides outreach experiences to our after school care and holiday programmes, as well as hosting community events at the YMCA. Keep an eye out for in-house updates or on our Facebook!

We understand that it’s hard for parents to leave their kids in other people’s care, that’s why we take safety very seriously. YMCA Programmes for children are proud to have Child Protection trained staff working with the children.
