The class name says it all! This class is made up of folks of all ages, 20’s through 70’s! This is a fun group who isn’t afraid to say what they really believe. (They get that from their teacher.) What makes this class so special is the inter-generational model where the “seasoned” class members can encourage the younger ones, and where the younger members help keep the older folks feeling young!
