Instructor Info: Sarah DeGuzman
Sarah DeGuzman began her dance training at the age 4, studying tap, ballet, jazz, and contemporary forms of dance. As a youth she danced competitively throughout southern California. Sarah received her BA in Human Development from the University of California San Diego, where she was a member of the UCSD competitive dance team and studied modern dance. She danced professionally as a member of the Collette Harding Contemporary Dance Company, three seasons of Trolley Dances, and as a performer at Legoland California.

Sarah began teaching in 2012 at various dance studios training dancers of all ages in tap, ballet, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary styles of dance both for competition and recreation. She taught preschool for 7 years and designed her own arts based preschool program, which opened its doors in 2014. Sarah has two little boys of her own, the older of which she is currently homeschooling. Teaching is truly her passion and she is excited to bring her talents to our community here at the Camarillo YMCA.

BALLET

Your kids will get active and express themselves creatively.  Ballet classes at the Y help your little ones to discover the basics and beauty of ballet in a safe, fun, social atmosphere.  From the first plié to the final performance, new dancers will enjoy taking ballet at the Y. Students learn age-appropriate dance techniques of ballet at the barre, including basic positions, arm, hand and leg movements, good posture, and more.

CHEER

Cheer is a social and team-based activity that boosts self-esteem while contributing to greater physical strength, coordination, balance and flexibility.

At the Y, cheer instills leadership by helping children set a positive mood with their voice and attitude.  Children also learn team-building, discipline and creativity developing and perfecting routines.

In addition, cheer classes bring out the little leader in participants. A cheerleader will:

  • Set the mood
  • Use positive reinforcement to motivate a team
  • Encourage discipline and teamwork
  • Build confidence within themselves and those they are cheering for

TUMBLING

Oh, to be a kid again!  Tumbling, a form of gymnastics without the use of equipment, is so much fun! It develops social skills, reinforces spatial concepts such as over, under, in, out, together, apart; and enhances gross motor skills (movement and coordination).

At the Y, your little ones can learn age-appropriate balance and flexibility skills. Participants will learn the basics of tumbling in a fun and safe way. Utilizing indoor mats, tumblers will discover movements like rolls, stretches, cartwheels and more.
