YMCA Arts

Creative play opportunities for all ages!

YMCA Calgary is excited to offer a dynamic selection of visual arts, drama and dance programs, workshops and live presentations.

Creative play – Mask-making, choir, drama, painting, figure drawing, dance for all ages, a puppet-building workshop, and much more!

YMCA Calgary offers everyone, from toddlers to seniors, an exciting breadth of creative play opportunities. Flex, tone and strengthen your creative muscles! – and build creative literacy for yourself and your children: these arts activities promote emotional, vocal, and body awareness, as well as self-expression, and self-confidence. And we do this in a supportive, inclusive, safe, FUN and caring environment. Register for these programs now.
