|New Drums Alive class for 50 plus begins Jan. 6|
A great workout that also improves memory, coordination, and motor skills is the aim of a new exercise program being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
The program is called Drums Alive, and will involves the use of drumsticks or wooden spoons to hit rubber balls, similar to drumming. Participants will be seated during the class. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under fitness & health. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “exercise.”
Drums Alive will meet at 2 p.m. on Tuesday beginning Jan. 13 at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty St., Overland Park. The cost for eight 50-minute sessions is $52 per person for Johnson County residents or $57 per person for nonresidents. Participants should bring their own drumsticks or wooden spoons.
While the JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District’s Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online at www.jcprd.com, follow the “Register for Activities” link and complete a barcode search for 26270. Printed copies of JCPRD’s Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
