1-Wall Line Dances

Trudy Sherman

Line dances consist of a short sequence of steps that are repeated throughout the song. In this class the steps are choreographed so that there are no turns and dancers remain facing the front wall. The instructor cues the upcoming moves so memorizing the sequence is not required. Dances are danced to contemporary music.
This class is for all ages and abilities.

Gentle Tai Chi - Qigong

Trudy Sherman

Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle Qigong (Chee gung) stretches and Tai Chi (Tie chee) movements that help improve circulation and release stress. Gentle Tai Chi (originally called Easy Tai Chi) was developed over 15 years ago for Parkinson's patients. This form of tai chi is done standing with both feet on the floor. The moves are stationary, so it can also be done sitting. Balance aids such as the back of a chair or a walker can be used, if needed.
