Personal Development

Pursuing personal interests can reveal hidden talents and add excitement to your life! Our Personal Development courses can assist you in developing a new hobby or skill, or enhance an existing one. These courses are a great way to make new friends who share similar interests. You’ll look forward to going to class, and you never know what hidden talents you’ll uncover!


Our photography class helps students learn what’s really happening inside cameras with this introduction to 35mm film and digital photography.  Learn how to manually set exposure and why it is necessary. Gain knowledge about f-stops, shutter speeds, and ISOs to properly set your camera for correct exposure. Depth of field, motion, and histogram are covered to help you understand exposure equivalents and how to best determine the best settings for a given situation. We cover proper camera handling and flash photography. Assignments are given and reviewed to help in the learning process. Students must have an adjustable camera (digital or SLR).  We invite you to register now for classes beginning this Fall.

Ballroom Dancing

At this time, our Ballroom Dance classes are temporarily suspended until further notice due to COVID-19.

Everyone can learn to dance regardless of experience or age. Learning some basic fundamental moves can have you dancing the night away in just a few hours. Many of the dances are interrelated, and with only slight adaptations, you will learn how to take steps you have learned in one dance and apply them to other, new dances. We will cover the Waltz, Rumba, Foxtrot, Swing, Cha Cha and even a little East Coast Swing.
