Outings

 

Newsies

Wednesday - Nov. 29

Departure - 10:00 a.m.

Return - 5:00 p.m.

Our luxury coach will transport us to The Marriott Theatre in beautiful Lincolnshire.

Inspired by the real-life New York City Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when the newspaper publishing titans raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense. Jack rallies newsies from across the city to fight them. With music by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast) and book by Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Kinky Boots), this recent Broadway smash is a high- energy musical thrill for the whole family!

For lunch your choice of entrée: Grilled Mahi Mahi with pineapple relish or Lemon Herb Chicken with natural reduction. All lunches are served with chef’s selection of garden vegetables, potato or rice, fresh baked bread, dessert and a choice of beverage.

Tickets at $75 include transportation, show and lunch.

T’ai Chi Ch’uan

Practice balance and concentration with the gentle, flowing movements of classical T’ai Chi Ch’uan.

Taught by Tai Chi Master Susie Huang, this ancient Chinese series of 24 forms or postures can improve balance and strength.

In recent years, Western medicine has also recognized T’ai Chi as a natural way to lower blood pressure, improve coordination, and maintain general good health and mobility.

Put on your sneakers, bring a bottle of water, and join us in the gym for a new experience with ancient roots.



Neo Tai Chi

Every Thursday

10:30 — 11:30 a.m.

Please join Instructor Mark Drysch for a weekly class of this new form of Tai Chi designed with you in mind. Neo Tai Chi is based on the symmetry of the martial arts and the soft, flowing movements of Tai Chi. The 96 movements of the Neo Tai Chi form create a feeling of relaxation and well-being. It is intended to boost the immune system, strengthen the muscles, improve flexibility and balance, and enhance breathing; the movements are all gentle and non-impact. Neo Tai chi is the creation of your instructor Mark Drysch, who has 20 years of experience in the martial arts and Tai Chi.
