Creative play opportunities for all ages!
Our arts team believes that creating and sharing stories – through music, song, dance, theatre, and art-making of all kinds – has the power to bring us closer together, and build thriving, connected communities. Our goal is to offer everyone, from toddlers to seniors, an exciting breadth of creative opportunities.You can explore, flex, tone and strengthen your creative muscles! – and build creative literacy for yourself and your children. These arts activities promote emotional, vocal, and body awareness, as well as self-expression, and self-confidence. And we do this in a supportive, inclusive, safe, FUN and caring environment. Register for these programs now.As we build the foundations of an inclusive and high-quality base of arts programs, we are focused on three areas of impact:
- Hands on activities and creative exploration through our classes and workshops – inclusive, supportive, high calibre instruction
- A family-friendly performing arts series of live performances from professional companies in our theatres at Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge and Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton.
- Making our theatres available to the community to rent, offering our professional support staff, state of the art lighting, sound and video equipment to other community-minded organizations for performances and events of all kinds.
Whether it’s through paint, clay, music, drama or dance, creating and sharing stories through the arts has the power to bring us closer together, improve mental and physical wellness, and build thriving, connected communities.

RATTLE N STRUM
The recipe for fun? We take a scoop of toe-tapping tunes, add a dash of silliness, then rattle and strum until we’re ready to fall over. “Rattle and Strum” gets kids of all ages dancing, clapping, singing, and playing.
