Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) will kick off “The Unscripted Life: Improve Your Life with Improv” with Kareen King on March 7 and running weekly through April 25. Presented Mondays from 3–4 p.m. via Zoom, this program explores how developing improvisational skills can lead to increased positivity, creativity, attentiveness, flexibility, playfulness, decision-making ability and enjoyment in being in the moment.

JFCS also will offer “The Irish in America” with Ken Sorenson from 1-2 p.m., Wednesday, March 23. This program presents the story of the Irish immigration, including the potato blight of the 1840s that drove thousands here. Who were they? What have they become? Hear the history of those migrants and see how they have impacted our history and our culture.

Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.

Other classes offered in March and beyond include Afternoon Chair Yoga with Susan Bendix; Nutrition Lunch and Learn with Zoe; Explore Flamenco with Film, Storytelling & Movement with Angelina Ramirez; Adventures in Great Symphonic Music with Bruce Pulk; and more.
