Boulder City Magazine® February 2006 Issue

Although our intentions are to address all things in moderation during the holiday season, did this happen? I doubt it. For those who found it difficult to turn down the neighbor's wonderful baked goods delivered fresh with a welcoming smile or to indulge in a few extra goodies at a holiday potluck, the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of programs to help offset the inevitable outcome.

|The Community Fitness Center is open Monday-Friday 5:30 a.m. 9 p.m., Saturday 7 a.m. 4 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. 4 p.m. A daily rate of $3 is all it takes to get started and monthly rate passes are available. Free to members is a weekly stretching class and periodic body composition analysis. For those who need extra guidance, certified personal training is offered.
Our popular new Ballroom Dance class has been split into two groups. Classes are held on Thursday evenings with continuing students attending from 7 8 p.m. and beginners attending from 6 7 p.m. or 8 9 p.m. Students learn basic ballroom dance in the beginner class and fine tune their skills with a variety of bells and whistles, which in this case are dips and turns. Added new to the ballroom dance schedule are Party Nights February 11 and 18 and March 11 and 25 from 7 8:30 p.m. at the Recreation Center at 900 Arizona Street. Ballroom Dance class students pay only $5 and drop-ins pay $7. You can practice your skills and get a mini-lesson at the same time. If you feel like you need personalized attention, instructor Greg Everton is happy to schedule private lessons. As a new student myself, I can tell you that ballroom dancing is a lot more fun than I ever thought possible.
Increased activity of any kind will help to offset the inevitable outcome of a few holiday indulgences. As we think a little more creatively, it’s never too late to start a new activity such as martial arts, training your dog or maybe it's time to dig out that tennis racket. If all this sounds a bit too taxing to start, consider a slow paced Tai Chi or Yoga class or even a casual swim in the City Pool.
