Dance & Baton
Move to the Music
New Berlin Recreation offers an incredible variety of dance, poms and twirling classes for all ages! Whether you're brand new to dance and need to learn the basics, or looking to grow and develop further in your dance journey. Perhaps you're an adult looking to take social dance lessons? Or maybe you have a child looking to learn a fun, new skill? No matter what, we've got you covered!
Dance, dance, dance in New Berlin!
In the City of New Berlin, we offer everything from "Creative Movement" and "Zumbini" for children as young as 2-3 years old, to various programs for all ages of school children, to social dance nights or classes for children at heart, ages 16 and older! There's summertime camps, and ongoing dance programs in New Berlin throughout different seasons. Needless to say, there's something for everyone and every schedule! Note that most programs are held at the New Berlin Activity and Recreation Center, but different age groups also have practice at an off-site facility.
Poms, twirling and ribbons!
As an added layer of skill and fun, there are also many youth dance and movement programs in New Berlin that feature either poms, baton twirling or ribbons. These extra elements of excitement and coordination are available for children as young as 3 years old. Throughout your child's time in these programs, they gain so much more than "rehearsing steps." The teamwork, progression of skills, learning formations and transitions all lead to a versatile, fun and confidence-building experience!
Adults: More ways to move to the beat...
In addition to our youth dance programs, we regularly have popular adult dance and music fitness classes like "Zumba" , "Adult Tap and Jazz” and “Ballroom Dance” among others.
