The dynamic YOUTH and ADULT DANCE DIVISIONS engage the community and challenge themselves through year-round classes, workshops, performances and annual events.
HALA’S “Youth Dance Classes” are open to everyone ages 6-19. Classes are available in Allentown and Bethlehem.
Classes are supplemented by workshops with guest choreographers and attendance at professional dance performances.
Students with discipline, desire and talent are invited to audition for “Advanced Dance”.
HALA Youth Dancers learn, teach, and perform throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
The Dance Division’s Youth Leadership Board gives motivated youth the opportunity to learn leadership skills and become engaged citizens of the community. The Youth Board helps set policy, identify problems and organize events.
Every August HALA’s dancers bring together youth performance groups from other cultures and regions to a conference called “SUYA EXCHANGE”.
