  • Hello!

    You are all in for a treat! We have some wonderful new events and some of our usual crowd pleasers.

    Remember, our events are all-ages. So bring your grandparent, child, friend, loved one, or any other person with whom you've been meaning to connect. Feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone. Have fun and expand your horizons...all at the BCCA!

    Featured Classes

    Keep the winter blues at bay with some high energy classes. Where else but at the BCCA can you take a powerful taikko drumming class in the Samurai warrior tradition? And our Low-Impact Latin Dance Workout, Kickboxing class, Jazz Funk Dance, and Savoy Swing Jazz for Beginners, along with Swing/Jitterbug for Beginners, will keep your body moving. And starting February 25, you can take Romantic Ballroom class and learn to blissfully glide across the dance floor at every social event with the coolest ballroom dances happening today.

    Reduce stress and promote integration of mind, body and spirit by taking Yang Style Tai Chi taught by Huan Zhang, or one of the great new classes by Roey Rose. Another way to relax tension, explore interactive movement, and find your core is by taking Movement & Contact Improvisation. Stretch your physical, emotional, and mental boundaries with a yoga class. And this Saturday, we will begin a wonderful new class - Mindful Movements for Poise and Health (based on the Alexander Technique) - teaching methods to regenerate your back and body alignment. Call BCCA for details or to register.

It provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes-and reflected in the hearts and minds-of members of the high-school generation that was born around the time of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, and that came of age in the 1960s. Carma will show excerpts from her film followed by discussion with the audience at this Amnesty event. Saturday, February 21, 6-8 pm.
