For Adults & Teens
Every Monday when the Library is Open,
from 6-7 p.m. in the Adult Program Room
Zumba Instructor, Connie Anderson, will provide both visual and verbal cues
to lead the class in easy, simple dance and fitness moves. Be prepared to move
your hips and shake your booty! The class will start with a warm-up, progress
to intervals of faster and slower tempos, and end with a cool down and stretch.
You don't have to be coordinated and know how to dance to try Zumba!
It uses a lot of repetition. Just be patient and don't get frustrated!
After a few classes you will begin to recognize the basic steps. Even if you
can't do a step, just move to however the music makes you feel.
There is no wrong or right way to Zumba!
Class is FREE for library patrons. Space is limited to the first 25 walk-in
participants. Wear comfortable clothing and sneakers.
*Due to the fast pace of Zumba steps, children under 13 years are not allowed to participate.

Knitting Circle for Ages 10 and Up

Knitting Circle is a fun, no instruction, minimal help gathering of fiber artists. Bring your current project and join us! If you are stuck on something we can advise, but you should already know the basics of your craft (not an instructional class). Knitting Circle members may also knit outreach projects such as baby caps, hats for cancer patients, and scarves for donation to organizations.
