YMCA Essence Legacy Performing Arts (E.L.)

Program Description

YMCA Essence Legacy Performing Arts (E.L.) for youth has provided a safe outlet to area kids since 2016. It’s recently expanded from a Percussion & Drill team, to incorporate Majorette, Color Guard, Choir and Cheerleading. A program that started with just 16 participants of drummers and steppers, has grown to over 90 performers enrolled within the five groups. Our members compete across the Mid-Atlantic, support community organizations and events by performing and volunteering throughout the year. Each year, our team participates in up to 12 competitions in which we perform our art at a top-level. Over the years our team has finished top three at each national competition and earned four national championships. We are highly committed to supporting our Wilmington and New Castle County Community.
