Fall Classes for Adults

Let’s Dance! Put on your red shoes…
with Renée Banson
Wednesday evenings, 6:15pm – 7:30pm
1st session starts Sept. 12-Oct. 3; series of 4 classes for $50 (First class is a FREE try out)
2nd session starts Oct. 10-Nov. 7; series of 4 classes for $65 (no class Oct. 31)
3rd session starts Nov. 14- Dec. 12; series of 4 classes for $65 (no class Nov. 21)

The class is geared towards the 55+ group with movements derived from jazz, modern, ballet and musical theater. Each class will begin with a 20 min. warm up that is an excellent overall workout yet is easy on the body. Thera-bands will be provided for resistance training. Following we will be learning choreography to a song from our “era”. I will take music suggestions from the group. At the end of the 1st class we will discuss everyone’s concerns, ideas, suggestions etc. that will help me plan classes accordingly. Lastly, I want us to have fun while working out! This is also a good way to experience the camaraderie of dancing with a group. An informal performance for family and friends will be planned but is optional. Come out and join us and “Put on your red shoes and dance the blues!”
