Youth Ballet Classes

Youth Ballet classes are offered seasonally at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center through a partnership with instructor Leona Cichy for youth in Pre-K through 4th grade.

Students will learn basic ballet technique in a fun and encouraging class environment, with a goal of  instilling a love of movement and dance for children. Classes will focus on the basics of gross motor movement including strength, coordination, and flexibility, as well as socialization and group learning. Every class will be a dance adventure of music and movement!
