East Coast Swing, Session II
with Barbara Charles, Merrymeeting Adult Education
Are you ready to be cool? If so, the Swing is a “must learn” dance. The dance was created by dance studios including the Arthur Murray dance studios in the 1940s, based on the Lindy Hop. For those who want to learn only Swing, we will be reviewing the foundation and adding more moves, including the triple step.
Session II is a repeat of Session I.
Classes are held at Cellar Fitness, 9 Cumberland St., Brunswick.

Healing Without the High: Using CBD in Your Everyday Wellness Routine
with Stacy Moore, Merrymeeting Adult Education
When our bodies get depleted we are no longer able to produce enough of the cannabinoids responsible for keeping the mind and body in a state of equilibrium known as “health.” Luckily, the hemp plant is full of naturally-occurring cannabinoids that can help the body bring itself back into balance again. In this class you will explore how CBD interacts with the body, discover different extraction and delivery methods, and find out how to select the right product for you. You’ll also create a personalized blend of essential oils and CBD for a therapeutic roll-on to take home with you and enjoy CBD infused treats while you learn. No discounts.
