‘Bring a Friend Week’ at the Family Y’s Dance Center

As you can see in the photo slide show below, our young dancers — and their friends — are having a wonderful time during the Family Y’s yearly “Bring a Friend Week.”

Miss Lillian teaches tap to some tiny dancers.

Our new Fall Session of dance classes marks Lillian Cenatiempo’s first semester as director. In case you missed it, here’s an article about “Miss Lillian” and her plans to enhance our Dance Center’s acclaimed program.

An upcoming case in point: The Dance Center has scheduled a new Funky Jazz/Hip Hop Workshop to take place on Saturday, November 3. Taught by Catherine Boreen, a highly regarded local teacher currently based in Wilton, the workshop features two sessions. A class for dancers ages 6 to 8 will be held from 12 to 1:30 pm, followed by a 1:30 to 3 pm class for dancers ages 9 to 12.

Catherine Boreen founded an award-winning dance school in Toronto, training over 10,000 students, some of whom went on to Broadway, Canada’s National Ballet and “So You Think You Can Dance.” She has won many choreography awards for tap, jazz, musical theater and acro.
