Learning to dance not only makes you look good at weddings. It gives you a full-body workout and the outlet for creative expression you never knew you needed. The Y’s dance programs provide quality instruction in a low-pressure environment so you can find your groove.

At the Y dancing is both a physical and a social exercise, with tangible benefits for the mind, body, and spirit.

Here you can learn to dance for your wedding, class reunion, or any other occasion that calls for it. Or you can dance for the health benefits it brings. Things like a stronger core, better balance, and greater flexibility.

The Keene Family YMCA offers dance classes in monthly sessions through the fall, winter and spring, and beginners are always welcome.

There are many reasons to learn how to dance. Come and experience the joy of it with us!

Program Information

Ballroom Dancing

All Ages

Join in the fun of social dance with instructor Sandi Finley. Each session we offer a beginner and an intermediate class, each focusing on different dances. Partners are not required. But comfortable dress and appropriate shoes are! Rubber-soled or open-back shoes are not permitted. Participants in the intermediate class must have taken the beginner class prior, or they can combine and take them both in the same session. Examples of dances taught may include the Waltz, Tango, Rumba, Swing, Cha-Cha and Foxtrot. Ballroom dancing is a wonderful activity that is fun, social, and energizing. It’ll give you a great workout too!

Beginner Ballet

Ages 18+

Learn the foundational movements and positions of ballet. This class will work your lower body, core and upper body simultaneously for a full body workout.
