Extended Education Classes coming in the fall

Studies show that lifelong learning keeps us healthy, physically and mentally. So learn something new, something you’ve always wanted to do. The JCC is here to help you.

The JCC is currently developing four fun, new adult education classes for the fall.  All the classes will be geared toward beginners, with no experience required and are offered at a reduced fee for members.

With classes ranging from painting and dancing to language and acting, everyone can find a form of expression to learn anew or improve their existing skills. Plus, it’s always better to learn with others who share your interest.

New fall classes include:

  • Modern Conversational Hebrew Language Classes: Learn to speak modern, conversational Hebrew in a social atmosphere. Learn Hebrew naturally by starting with familiar objects to develop vocabulary. Classes will be taught by a native Hebrew speaker and are ideal if you want to learn to talk with Israeli friends or family, if you’re planning a trip to the Holy Land or simply interested in this beautiful language.
  • Acting for Adults: Do you love theatre? Do you love to sing and dance? Enrich your life as you learn what it feels like to step into the spotlight. This class is designed to teach the fundamentals of the craft of acting in an open and safe environment. The class will highlight quick and powerful ways to make your performance more natural and spontaneous through monologues, scenes, movement and song.
  • Introduction to Silk Painting: Create the kind of beautiful window drapes or silk scarves you’ve always admired for yourself or for others as gifts. Through exercises and demonstrations, you’ll learn the process of hand-crafting your own original silk. Participants will complete two silk painting pieces, ready to wear or hang on the wall.
  • Ballroom Dancing: You’ll never have to avoid the dance floor again. Learn the steps, techniques and style of modern ballroom dancing in a fun, social environment.
