MY Y STORY - MEET KELLY  

February, 2020

"'I literally never thought I'd ever hear the phrase 'shuffle-ball-change' uttered to me again since 3 years old, but when our Y decided to start offering these classes with a professional dance instructor for adults, I said what I always like to say in moments of bizarre opportunities: 'CARPE DIEM' ! I have to say: I feel like a kid again! This class is somewhat challenging because it is a great cardio, calf, and even brain workout, but also SO MUCH FUN! Our instructor, Candice (who also teaches a cardio Hip-Hop class at the Y) is patient in teaching us the different steps and has us practice the basics repeatedly before combining them into a progressive routine.

The class is filled with a mix of ages, levels, and abilities and everyone is so helpful and supportive of one another. We even have a member who started dancing for the first time in her 50's and is tapping now well into her 90's, which is just a reminder to me that you're really never too old to find your passion...and to show up a bunch of people who are half your age doing it!" - Kelly Dougherty, Administrative Assistant / Development Department kdougherty@midymca.org 

Our Commitment to Inclusion:

 

The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility—they guide everything we do.
