YMCA classes teach dance, theater, and art

August 2, 2016 Comments (6)

GIG HARBOR, Wash. - The Gig Harbor YMCA isn’t just about swimming and racquetball and exercise machines, although those are definitely an important part of the Y program.

There’s also a whole other aspect of the Y that includes classes in art, dance and theater, according to Lynn Wilmot-Stenehjem, associate executive director and director of arts.

“YMCA programs are so unique because we focus on the whole person — body, mind and spirit,” Wilmot-Stenehjem said. “And no one is ever discouraged. Everyone is rewarded for their efforts, whether they’re kids in a dance or theater class or adults in a painting class.

And sometimes the classes become international cultural exchanges.

This past spring, a group of youngsters who study dance at the Tacoma and Gig Harbor YMCAs spent two weeks in Thailand exchanging dances with kids there.

Three Gig Harbor youngsters made the trip and presented programs of contemporary, hip hop and improvisational dance, demonstrating the techniques they had learned in their Y classes.

“The arts are a way of communicating that transcends language or cultural barriers,” Wilmot-Stenehjem said. “And they really do nourish the human spirit.”

  • ome people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse. The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water. https://www.cialissansordonnancefr24.com/achat-cialis-pharmacie-paris/
