Hooray! Hooray! New Classes On The Way
A kid at heart, I always get excited this time of year. There’s something about the pending change of weather, kids going back to school, fall sports and new recreation classes that get my blood stirring. I’d like to highlight a few new classes from our Sept. 08 - Feb. 09 brochure.

|The Art Center has some great new classes in the medium of polymer clay. Polymer clay is a fantastic medium to work in and is suitable for kids and adults. Kids 8 years and older are eligible to take many of the classes and these classes are a perfect way for parents to spend that special one-on-one time with their child. Homemade gifts are the best and polymer clay can be made into figurines, beads and more.
We’re thrilled to be able to offer a variety of acting and improvisation classes. Acting and improvisation skills are a great attribute as they improve communication, aid in gaining confidence and understanding yourself and others. Classes are designed to meet the desires of the individuals enrolled and can range from basic acting techniques for auditions, cold reading, commercial copy technique and more. As a Director on the National Board of the Screen Actors Guild and a professor at the College of Southern Nevada, Instructor Art Lynch brings a wealth of knowledge to these classes. Classes available to youths age 10 through adult.
Get some fresh air and enjoy some amazing local vistas with Desert Mountain Running. This eight-week course of guided runs to the top of local mountains provides a unique experience. The runs are timed for sunset to take advantage of the best weather and sunsets. You won’t want to miss the guided hikes on the River Mountain Trail. These guided hikes are great for those who have not hiked the trail or are interested in the history and mysteries of the area. The round trip is 5 miles and worth your effort as the top of the mountain offers 360 degree views including Las Vegas, El Dorado Valley, Wilson Ridge, Fortification Hill and Lake Mead.
New at the pool is a Water Tai Chi class. Water Tai Chi stimulates the metabolism, increases energy, massages and tones the muscles and joints and improves breathing and posture. The benefits of practicing Tai Chi in water rather than on land are that the clumsiness, stiffness and heaviness experienced on land are easily overcome in water.
