"What an awesome time I had at the family/parents’ class that was hosted during my daughter’s class!  Each child could bring someone to class to participate. My daughter Olivia was so excited to have me there to teach me “her moves” and watch mommy try and outdo her.  It was definitely a workout, but watching those kids watch us was worth it... Olivia is so proud of what she has learned. 

Olivia is a proud member of YWCA New Britain (she dances there as well), and I let everyone we know what an awesome place it is. Thank you all so much for the programs and services you offer. The New Britain community is lucky to have you!"
