WHY IYF PUTS A FOCUS ON DANCE

Dance is good for your health and your mind – dancing together trains you to collaborate, builds teamwork, and helps you gain confidence you can use in life. IYF utilizes expressive dance forms, musicals, and drama in a positive environment to help you share your heart and open hearts with every move.
