Ballroom Dance, Beginner Session IV

$61

with Barbara Charles

Jun 14, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Students get a unique opportunity to learn both Latin and American Ballroom in one class! Latin Ballroom is one of the hottest dance crazes to hit the U.S.; it’s fun, romantic and a great form of exercise. Cruises, nightclubs, weddings, reunions and parties are always more fun when you are dancing, and American Ballroom Dance is a perfect ice breaker. At any social event, the sight of a great dancer moving to a captivating beat is simply irresistible, and now you too can step into that light with confidence. No partner or prior dance experience necessary. In Sessions I and III students learn all the basics in Foxtrot, Swing, Salsa and Merengue. In Sessions II and IV students learn all the basics in Waltz, Rhumba, Cha Cha and Tango. No discounts.

Belly Dance

$96

with Josephina Gasca

Jun 13, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Authentic Belly Dance, or raks sharqi, is an ancient form of dance. Raks sharqi means “dance of the east” in Arabic. Belly dance celebrates every body type and every stage of life. The dance is proud and powerful and soft and sinewy with elegant and isolating movements emanating from the core. It’s the Pilates of dance. And so much fun! Please wear comfortable clothing, similar to what you might wear to a yoga class that will allow for free movement and the ability to see your movement. Hip scarves make it even more fun. You can dance barefoot or in a pair of comfortable dance shoes. Zils (finger cymbals) will also be used in class and are available for purchase from the instructor.

Edible Mushroom Collecting Walk

$45

with Long Branch School

Jul 23, 2017 at 1 pm

This course will include walking the woods to find edible mushrooms along with detailed descriptions of habitat and structure of mushrooms. Please contact the school to learn more about the specific location of the walk. David Spahr has collected edible mushrooms for 39 years. He is a member of the Maine Mycological Society and the North American Mycological Assoc. He is on the Maine Mushroom Task Force developing rules for the foraging and sale of wild mushrooms.    Every walk bears a different bounty depending on the weather as much as location.  The majority of the mushrooms found in nature are often not edible, but learning this element is even more important than knowing which ones to eat.  David’s depth of experience really shows in that he is a walking mycological encyclopedia. Required Supply List: Notebook and pen to take notes on your finds is very useful. A GPS may be an even better solution; basket, mesh or other bags, wax or brown paper, knife, bug repellant, hat, water or other refreshment and a snack, glove, waterproof boots (preferred), tall socks you can tuck your pant legs, optional: vest with pockets or backpack, field guide, magnifying glass. Minimum age with adult: 12.
