Registration for the Spring session is now ongoing at The Connection. The Spring Session runs from April 7th through June 15th (adult classes run until 6/22), and offers a variety of classes for everyone.

Summer is just a few months away: get the whole family moving at The Connection! Adults can enjoy group fitness and dance classes. Get moving with the little ones in any of the Parent/Child classes offered. Every child will find a class they love while choosing between dance, gymnastics, swim, acting, cooking, karate, sports and art!

Parents receive their first month of their Total Facility Membership FREE when they sign their child up for the Spring Term! Parents can fit in a workout while their child is in class. Take advantage of this $65 savings before 4/26/2014. Sign up in person only, limit one per household.

NEW at The Connection this spring: art, cooking and chess for children! Playing chess helps children to learn responsibility and discipline, improve concentration, and sharpen thinking skills. Boys and girls grades 2-5 are welcome to join The Connection’s “Chess Club” on Tuesday afternoons (5:30-6:30pm).

Artistic growth has a tremendous effect on all aspects of children’s emotional and intellectual development. Children ages 3-6 will love exploring their creativity in “Adventures in Art” on Saturday mornings (10:15-11:00am). School age children in grades 2 – 4 can create their own masterpieces inspired by famous artists in the new class “Artist Meets Artist” (9:00-10:00am). They will learn their styles, including Expressionism, Impressionism, and Cubism. Children should bring their imagination, creativity and a smock.

It is never too early to start developing culinary skills. “Little Chefs” (grades K – 1) will be offered Saturdays from 11:15-12:15pm and “Young Chefs Academy” will be offered Saturdays from 12:15-1:15pm. Children will learn healthy food choices and have a blast practicing age appropriate skills in the kitchen!
