FALL 2016 Class information

Mature Moving Me @ Mesa Arts Center

WHAT: A creative movement class for adults 55+ to exercise your mind, body, and creativity in a supportive and joyful community atmosphere. We’ll use a range of creative tools and practices to make and improvise dance that draws from our own stories and life experience. Each class begins with a physical practice that includes gentle moving, conditioning, and appropriate aerobic activity. The class will culminate in an informal final performance or creative project created collaboratively over the course of the session. No previous dance experience is necessary. 

WHEN:  Thursdays, 9:00-10:30 a.m., October 6- December 8.

REGISTER: This class is free, but spots are limited to 20 people, so email engagement@mesaartscenter.com to reserve your spot!
