Only three days left to register for the Morgan Family YMCA Dance Recital set for June 17-18.
"Dance Company to me is important. It makes me feel like a model for younger kids, to inspire them to do what makes them happy. When I dance I can be myself, I can express myself while making people happy. Danicing is also very fun, a learning experience and opens me up to people who enjoy what I like as well," said Greta M.
There is still room for your child to sign up, but registration must be completed by this Saturday. You can register here:
Here at Morgan Family YMCA we believe in safety first, which is why we cleared our building this morning when the fire alarm went off. We were quickly given the all clear by the Tacoma Fire Department and everyone was able to return to their myriad activities.
The alarm was set off by dust from the renovation of the upstairs women's locker room.
Kudos to all members for clearing the facility and to the fire department for responding so quickly.
Tacoma Rainiers mascot Rhubarb swung by Morgan Family YMCA last week. If you missed him, then be sure and come to Healthy Kids Day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 30 at Cheney Stadium. Rhubarb will be there to sign autographs, take photos and most of all to have fun.
Along with Rhubarb you will also have the chance to interact with the Tacoma Stars and Sounders U23 soccer teams, participate in an American Ninja Warrior-type course, see a pro skateboarder, watch a Museum of Glass demonstration, hang out with the folks from the Tacoma Children's Museum, play in a Home Run Derby and multiple bouncy houses, plus much, much more.
We hope to see you this Saturday at Cheney Stadium.

"I started dancing at the age of 3 and have participated in activities at the Y ever since. The Y has been a part of my childhood. I grew up here. When I first joined the dance company I was pretty insecure and shy, but I have not only grown as a dancer but also as a person. I have learned responsibility through teaching, hard work in my classes, love and the value of friendship from my dance sisters," Rachel M.
