Preteen Dances

During the school year, the Youth Services team facilitates preteen dances. The dances are for youth in grades six and seven, and provide opportunities for preteens to explore social interactions in a safe, supervised environment while having fun. The dances also create a shared community experience prior to moving on to high school.  All dances are from 7-10pm. For a complete listing of all dances please view our youth Events/Calendar or see below.
