Great range of classes available at Cockburn Seniors Centre

The City of Cockburn's response to Fremantle Herald about the great range of classes/activities available at Cockburn Seniors Centre

Question: I noticed the great range of classes at your Seniors Centre ... the belly dancing class caught my eye. Just wondering how that class came about, how many people on average go along to classes, and who takes it? Are any new classes planned or any special events lined up for National Seniors Week in November?

Answer: The belly dancing classes have been running for several years and have continued to be a fun, creative and popular experience. They began because it was a unique and different activity for members to participate in. It brings confidence to those who perform. The class is attended by anywhere between four and nine people and each session is led by a specialist instructor.
Do you have any new classes planned:
Nordic Walking demo on 3 November
Chair Yoga fortnightly commencing 2 November
Sound Healing started fortnightly on 31 October
Pool Walking at Cockburn ARC this Thursday 27 October
A Christmas Market is planned for November
We held a successful Seniors Got Talent event last month.
Any special events lined up for National Seniors Week in November:
A Seniors Week themed luncheon on 7 November
Outing to the Perth Have-A-Go Day in Burswood on 9 November. Members can book and pay for this outing at the Centre.
