Creativity for a Brighter Future

Arts programming at the Y sparks creativity in our youth. They learn to express themselves in ways they never knew possible. Throughout our various Y's of the North Shore, we offer all types of programs to build future artists: Drama (play writing, comedy, improv, full-scale musical and theatrical performances), Music (solo and group vocal lessons), Dance (ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and hip-hop), Fine Arts (painting, ceramics, crafts, and photography). 

Arts, Theatre, and Dance programs are not currently offered at the Cape Ann Y, but check out the many options just up the road at the Ipswich Family, Sterling and Salem YMCAs!

Our Arts, Theatre and Dance programs change seasonally.

North Shore YMCA Theatre Company

The YMCA of the North Shore created the Theater Company as an introduction to theater and performing arts for beginners and a place to showcase the talents of experienced child actors.

The Theatre Company strives to enrich our community by creating a place for children of all ages and backgrounds to join together in a love of stage. In an educational and nurturing environment, we inspire tomorrow's artists through performance, classroom education, and mentorship. The Theatre Company encourages children to embrace diversity, grow in individuality, and cultivate relationships throughout the North Shore.
