    Dear Friends

    Happy Monday!

    An entertaining and varied week awaits us again. All information here in the eNews and in the calendar. Please register soon for our March events, as the places for some activities are limited.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Your eNews editor,



    march monthly meeting 2
    There’s something about the movement into spring that just reinvigorates our senses. A simple stroll around the city captures the almond trees in bloom, the sweet sound of birds chirping in the air and the warm feeling of the sun beaming down upon us once again. It is with this energy that we bring you the March Monthly Meeting: “Moovin’ N’ Groovin’ into Spring.” Not only do we have a large space, in the perfect setting but we also have three INC members ready to share their talents and get our bodies moving in perfect preparation for the new season that awaits.

    First, Stacy Viva brings her knowledge of movement and mindset in a combined practice that is “inspired by yoga, backed by neuroscience and tested against real life.” Stacy will guide us on how to Move to Happiness while promoting “mind and body alignment…positive mindset and [use of] correct body movements.” Stacy will highlight intention, balance, and posture with daily practices that will ensure a “stronger body, positive mind and open heart.”

    Once we are warmed up, Inge Drenthen will move us into the second part of the program: Las Sevillanas. While not technically a flamenco, they are included within this highly colorful and cheery style of dance. We will learn the basics of clapping, how to move our arms, hands and feet in order to achieve the complexities required from this type of movement. Inge is knowledgeable in various forms of dance: classical ballet, modern dance, Sevillana, Flamenco, and oriental dance.

    Finally, we will shift gears entirely with Jenn Lopez! Using her extensive experience in the field of performing arts, Jenn has discovered that “meaningful engagement with people is her true calling.” Now, if you think you can’t dance, Jenn will not only teach you some power moves to a very popular Beyonce song, she will also prove that you will enjoy every minute of it as well! We think that sounds like quite a challenge and we are ready to take our moves to the next level – are you?
