Even if you play already, come sharpen your skills and have fun learning with others. Our plan is to meet in person, outside, under a tent (with sides)! We will start with chords and songs while we address topics such as technique, strumming, reading music and tab, and finger-picking. We'll have power for amps. Get some new strings and bring lots of enthusiasm and questions about guitar! New students - $25 material fee for two books and other materials to be picked up at the Adult Ed office.

Middle Eastern Belly Dance Drills & Thrills

Class has been rescheduled for May 4 through July 6 and will be held outside under a tent. More information will be available soon, but please call the office at 729-7323, if you have questions.
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! This mixed level class will feature a pre-class instruction video and a practice video for every class so that when we come together, either live in-studio (limit 3, masks and safe distancing required) or via Zoom (no limit), Josephina can answer questions and explain technique more in-depth. Then, we will dance together, practicing the featured technique. Before we close, there will be another opportunity for questions. This is a great refresher class for experienced dancers and suitable for dancers new to belly dance. 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 in the studio.
Students must have an audio and video-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate.
