Seniors can dance, act, sing and socialize in online classes that Jewish Family & Children’s Service is offering starting this month.
The Creative Aging classes for people ages 60 and older are being provided via Zoom in order to promote safety during this Coronavirus pandemic.
Dance Through the Decades will be offered Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to noon Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25 for $40. Michelle Dionisio will teach students the elements of dances that were popular from the 1950s to the 1980s. Some dances include Hand Jive, The Alley Cat, The Electric Slide and The Macarena.
In the Act 1 class, seniors will learn to stretch their creative muscles through improvisation and comedy monologues. This class will be held from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Aug. 6, 13, 20 and 27 and the cost is $50. Students will engage in fun, improv games designed to awaken the mind and body. They also will improvise a short scene and deliver monologues. Amanda Melby of Verve Studios is the teacher.
Take voice lessons from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesdays from Aug. 5 to Sept. 23 through the Creative Aging offerings. Students will warm-up as a group and sing individually, focusing on techniques, tone, style and other components of singing. The class costs $100.
