Activity summaries are:

Line Dancing is designed to increase your fitness, coordination, range of motion and to have fun.  It is an extremely low impact activity for people of all levels of fitness.  Come as you are; workout attire is not required.  Bring a partner for couples dancing scheduled one night per month.  Tina Barnes is the instructor. 

Beginning Tai Chi for Life, Fall Prevention and Teacher Training is designed to improve flexibility, balance, muscle strength, and aid in stress management and injury prevention—especially relating to falling.  These low impact and slow moving exercises are appropriate for individuals from teens to seniors and have a long history of being effective in strengthening the muscles that support and align the joints.  Tai Chi is officially classified as a “moderate aerobic activity,” as is “brisk walking.”  Dr. Robert (Sam) Lackey is the instructor.

Intermediate Tai Chi for Life, Fall Prevention and Teacher Training will help improve on the postures that were practiced in Beginning Tai Chi for Life and additional postures will also be introduced.  Beginning Tai Chi for Life is a pre-requisite for Intermediate Tai Chi for Life. Dr. Robert (Sam) Lackey is the instructor.
