Beginning Belly Dance

$64

with Patti Luchetti

Mar 2, 2017 at 7 pm, runs for 8 weeks

If you have a joy of movement, this dance is for you – come celebrate! Belly Dance, also known as Middle Eastern and Oriental dance, is the dance native to the ancient Middle East. Widely integrated and spread with the aid of the migrating Rom peoples, it is commonly practiced from India to Spain and beyond. The class will introduce the signature torso movements and rhythms of this dance art, which provide gentle and strengthening full-body exercise, with an emphasis on the belly and thighs. Students will accomplish a simple choreography during the session. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing or dancewear and bring a large scarf for the hips. Patti Luchetti has studied and performed Oriental Dance for 25 years in Maine, NYC and abroad.

Community Band

$69

with Carol Preston

Feb 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Come join a community band. If you currently play a band instrument (woodwind, brass, percussion) or used to, this is your chance to play with other like-minded people in a relaxed but productive setting. This is a perfect option for those who were in school bands but have not played much since, as well as those who have continued to play. You should be able to play at least at an intermediate level (including concert B flat and E flat scales).

Band members need their own instrument (except for percussionists). Please make sure your instrument is in good condition. Music will be provided. We will give an informal performance at our last class for your family and friends.

Carol Preston has taught music at the elementary and middle school levels for 15 years, including band. She operates the Preston Music Studio in Damariscotta and has been concertmaster of the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra for 15 years. Carol holds a BA of Music in Violin Performance and English from Concordia College (Moorhead, MN) and an MA in music from the University of Iowa. She is also trained as a Suzuki Method violin teacher.

Creative Writing Workshop - Session 1

$94

with Elizabeth Potter

Feb 1, 2017 at 1 pm, runs for 4 weeks

This ongoing workshop offers participants an opportunity to get the creative juices flowing, overcome the internal critic, and let heart and soul flow out onto the page! Just as importantly, it also provides a tight knit, supportive community of fellow writers with whom to share the fruits of your labor. The instructor, Elizabeth Potter, will present proven writing prompts and techniques to tickle your muse and coax even the most hesitant voice onto the page.

As participants build a portfolio of rough drafts, they will begin the process of editing and revision, in addition to clarifying individual goals for works in progress.

Lastly, participants will have the opportunity when ready (this may take 1-3 four week sessions) to fine tune work in progress through intensive group critique and editing, resting on the old adage, “Many eyes are better than one”. During a critique session, the instructor and classmates offer honest, constructive feedback, both on what is strong and effective in a piece of writing, as well as what might be hindering its full expression. In addition, possible publishing leads and resources will be presented.
