Peformance Gaage Youth Moves

YOUTHMOVES

Since 2004, the Performance Garage has offered free dance classes to youth in the Spring Garden neighborhood, providing children ages 7-18 the opportunity to experience the joy of dance in a warm and welcoming environment.

YouthMoves enriches the lives of students by exposing them to the performing arts in a professional setting, and creates an outlet for self-expression. In addition to gaining formal dance skills, students have the opportunity to build confidence and self-discipline through physical and artistic education.

“Performance Garage classes are strict, but not constrictive. We have more fun here than other dance schools … we learn more about the dance world other than just dancing… we learn something new every time class meets and not just rehearsing for a show that we must do… It (Performance Garage) gets us out of our comfort zone…”
Stanley | High School Student
