Inspiring kids celebrate the holiday season at the Sedona YMCA!
Sedona AZ (December 11, 2013) – Community 7th/8th-grade kids are invited to a snow ball dance and ice cream party on Friday, December 20, 2013, 6:30 – 8:45 p.m. Parents can drop off their kids at Y headquarters at Posse Grounds Park where they can laugh, dance, sing, mingle with their peers, enjoy awesome ice cream and listen to inspiring and entertaining mixes by DJ Sno. All of this for the amazing low cost of five dollars per child plus two dollars per bowl of ice cream!
YMCA staff, volunteer chaperones and the Arizona Rangers will work together to oversee that a safe, supportive and good time is had by all.
Margaret Rebello, an adult volunteer chaperone of the recent Sedona YMCA Halloween dance said “The children really enjoyed the music and each other’s company, all in a very safe environment.”
“The elementary school dances I attended in Phoenix made a big impact on my life,” said Sedona YMCA director, Jim Allen. “Even though I was too shy to dance, I loved going and listening to my favorite songs as well as being exposed to new music.” Mr. Allen added, “In those days, we had excellent, live rock bands and a light show that was designed as a UFO. The combination of music and lighting helped expand my imagination and sense of positivity. I see a lot of kids here at the Y having similar responses to good DJ’s. The DJ’s we contract with for the Y dances are inspiring, motivating, positive people who love music and love uplifting kids. My hope is to offer dance and karaoke parties more frequently throughout the year.”
