The Madison Area YMCA offers a diverse array of classes tailored toward preschoolers through adults across all program areas. This Winter Session, there is truly something for everybody! Check out our brand-new 20-week School of Performing Arts (SOPA) classes featuring a range of selections including acting, ballet, hip hop, musical theater, and many more. The SOPA 20-week program will round off in an exciting Year-End Showcase, where participants are able to display their hard work through energetic and inspiring performances across different dance and theatrical styles. Throughout this 20-week experience, participants of all ages get the opportunity to explore new interests and learn alongside their peers in a fun and safe environment that emphasizes unity, support, and growth lead by highly skilled and welcoming Y staff. 

“Dance invigorates the body, mind, and spirit of all involved, participant and observer alike. When people dance, they feel healthier, hold their heads higher, and walk with poise and have self-confidence,” said School of Performing Arts Director Gus Ibranyi. “The Arts leave an indelible mark on youth, inspiring self-expression, self-esteem, and critical and creative thinking within every individual.”
