Dance for all!

At the Canandaigua Y we encourage movement; we encourage the dancer inside to come out and shine! The Y offers various styles of dance programs for budding performers of all ages. Explore the joys and benefits of music and movement. Miss Bernie VanEpps is the lead teacher and choreographer. She’ll nurture and help your child grow.
