The Senior Center offers several activities aimed at keeping seniors fit and active. For specific information on dates, pricing, and locations, check the recent Senior Newsletter.
Fit For Life
A fun workout program just right for the active older adult age 55+ who exercises with few limitations. Designed to help work on improving fitness, strength, balance, and
coordination. The class will get you moving and your heart pumping as you work at your own pace.
Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with a hard paddle and a whiffle ball. Although pickleball appears to be very similar to tennis, there are key differences that make pickleball more accessible to a wider range of players, particularly seniors.
Line DancingLine dance is easy to learn, lots of fun, and terrific exercise. It’s becoming more popular than ever as more places offer dancing. Instructor Annette Fragale teaches at an easy pace to country, Latin, polka, bluegrass, waltz, and contemporary music.
Tai ChiThe slow, fluid movements of Tai Chi promote balance and relaxation. This is the perfect way to learn this ancient-Chinese health exercise. All movements are performed standing. The fun, informative classes are taught by a gifted instructor, having taught the art of Tai Chi for over 30 years.
