    At the height of a YS Kids Playhouse production, when every member of the cast has gathered together at fever pitch to dance and belt out an ardent musical message, there can be a yearning, or even a fleeting sense of jealousy, that kids get to do all the fun stuff. But this fall, adults can have fun too, when YSKP opens up four new dance classes to people of all ages.
