The School of Performing Arts at The Madison Area YMCA held its annual Mid-Year Showcase on Sat., Jan. 18, at the College of St. Elizabeth’s Annunciation Center in Morristown. Two hundred forty performers aged 2 to 15 took to the stage dancing, singing and acting in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Creative Movement, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Modern, and Musical Theater numbers.

“Our students lit up the stage at the Mid-Year Showcase,” said Madison Area YMCA Associate SOPA Director Courtney Crerand. “They put their hearts and souls into their performances and had fun. The School of Performing Arts at The Madison Area YMCA brings out the best in children by providing opportunities for creative expression while helping to build self-esteem.”
