Within the Lynch/Van Otterloo YMCA, the next generation of dancers is being created for the Boston Ballet and for the profession. With the connection to a world-class dance company, students have opportunities to perform in the Boston Ballet’s annual production of The Nutcracker. Adult classes provide a way to explore the beauty of ballet and stay in shape in an artistic way.

Caring teachers bring out the dancer is each child at this school, which also caters to students with high-functioning autism. From hip hop to pointe, a full range of classes are taught by experienced teachers with some serious cred. An accomplished dance company is made up of students—who take lessons several times a week—and compete and assist teachers.
