The YWCA New Britain School of Dance is the #1 dance studio in New Britain. We strive to empower our students to build confidence and self-esteem while bringing out the grace and beauty in each of them. Our goal is to teach our students the discipline and art of dance by exploring the different facets that make it a unique art form. We promote acceptance of all levels of abilities, while encouraging and fostering leadership in our girls.
YWCA aims to bring out the natural ability in all our dancers and guide them as they develop a technical and creative talent they can be proud of. Students are grouped within each class according to age and ability and are encouraged to achieve at their own pace. With our combination of classic dance instruction and imaginative choreography, our dance staff is focused on guiding our dancers in their journey of self-expression and nurturing an appreciation for music, dance, movement, and art.
