Thing 89 - "Creative" Ballet @ Greenwich YMCA

I'm not sure if my daughter's running around the house, throwing herself on the floor and inch-worming herself into a corner, all while making extremely strange noises, would be considered "creative" dance.  Then again, she's 16 months old.  For those of you who have significantly more developed 4 to 5 year olds and feel they need an outlet, the Greenwich YMCA hosts "Kids Dance Class: Creative Ballet" on Tuesdays between 2pm and 2:45pm.  Now, I'm still a strong proponent of the Greenwich Dance Studio, but gather that is a hard class to get into.  While you are on the waiting list (there is no better operation in town), you might want to try this to keep your Twinkle-toes in step.  Here's some more information:

  • Where: YMCA, 50 E Putnam Ave, Greenwich, CT 06830
  • Date: Weekly on Tuesdays
  • Time: 2:00pm-2:45pm
  • Next on: Today, January 18, 2011
  • 4-5yrs. are invited to come and learn classical ballet positions, and more.

  • Price: Family Member $300 | Youth Member $350 Non-Member $450

THING 113 - Sunrise Yoga at the Greenwich YMCA (while it's still around)

I'm not sure why anyone would want to wake up voluntarily at 6:30am (I've done it for years for work (aka. not voluntarily)), let alone wake up that early to twist your body into a pretzel. But, for those of you who have an interest, the YMCA has Sunrise Yoga Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:30am to 7:30am.  If you're interested, I'd sign up now while there still is a Greenwich YMCA.http://www.greenwichymca.org/
