"Since I am a full time working mom it is difficult for me to make time to put my daughter in dance class. The YMCA at Don Juan made that available to my daughter by providing a weekly, cost effective dance class that she could attend during the Y hours. My daughter is having so much fun! Thank you for providing this service"

- Parent at Don Juan Avila YMCA
