YOUTH & TEEN CLASSES

Beginner’s Photography* -Did you get a new camera as a present or are planning to buy one? Confused about all those buttons and things like F-Stop, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and the like? This beginner’s class will help with all of that and allow you to get that camera off of automatic and take the photograph you would like instead of what the camera thinks you want. There will be an emphasis on shooting outdoors and we will have some practice. So, bring a lunch and learn how to use that camera!

Zumba – We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise.  We also do Zumba Toning within the workout.  It adds in light weights to the workout – no more than 5 pound weights are used.

Ages: 10 years and up
Fee: $5 per class or $25 for a 6 class pass
Day & Time: Wednesdays, 6:30 – 7:30 pm
