People at all levels of physical abilities are able to take advantage of the opportunity to sing, move, and create in a warm and supportive interactive environment.

The class, which is done fully seated, is appropriate and fully adaptable for people at a variety of levels of physical abilities. People living with memory challenges can also enjoy the classes.
