Teach line dancing/Zumba/jazzercise to our low-income seniors!
Are you a certified dance teacher with training in line dancing? Or, do you have experience in leading Zumba Gold, jazzercise or other low impact dance classes for seniors? Do you have experience facilitating a healthy movement class for seniors? Are you interested in giving back to share your love of physical activity with low-income seniors? Would you like to gain experience and practice hours teaching? If so, our residents would love to have you!
Create, lead and plan activities for each class. Greet attendees and make them feel welcome. Provide encouragement and relay any concerns to staff. Help residents build confidence as they learn new skills.

Build relationships with residents and get to know them. Give back to the community by sharing your skill and expertise with others. This is a great opportunity for certification students to get their hours.
