The Y’s lineup at 4812 Hamburg Pike in Jeffersonville includes ballet, jazz, and five types of ballroom dancing classes to capture the interest and the lively beat.
Professionals will lead a variety of sessions that are open to the public. To enroll or for more information, stop by the Y or call Julie Callaway, the Y’s wellness director, at 283-9622.
