Perfect For-Everybody and everybody! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.
How It Works-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. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
Benefits-A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

What Do You Do with the MAD that You Feel? Helping Children Manage Anger and Learn Self-Control
Examine the developmental stages a child goes through to learn self-control and explore the important lessons parents and early childhood educators can share along the way to support that process. By gaining insight that the ways children deal with their mad feelings is a developmental issue rather than a moral issue, we can help the children learn how to deal with difficult feelings constructively.

THE RENTED CHRISTMAS
We will be taking a group for supper to the Famous Hubble House and then
over to Mantorville's historic Opera House for a show!
John Dale hasn't enjoyed a "real Christmas" for years. So, on the spur of the moment, he decides to "rent" a Christmas from a rental shop making the claim "We'll rent anything." Anne Weston, who owns the local rent shop, is at first flustered with the requirements: a tree with presents, Christmas carols and also a wife and five children. Anne feels she has solved the problem of a Christmas family by calling the actors' guild. But the young actors come down with the measles so she turns to the local orphanage. When the guild can't locate a "mother," Anne steps in to play the role herself. Based on the short story by J. Lillian Vandervere, the story of how John Dale’s rented Christmas turns into a new life for all concerned makes this a warm story for the holiday season.
