Don’t miss the annual Winter Concert series kicking off January 23 with the classic rock sounds of On Air. Performing the best of ‘70s and ‘80s groups like Chicago, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, and Van Morrison—the group dips back to Motown and Styx and ahead to contemporary selections with a pleasing blend of soul, funk, jazz and swing that’ll please the entire family. On March 12, a Blues Brothers tribute, Briefcase Full of Blues, takes place and will bring back memories of the hit movie, as they duplicate all aspects of the original’s music and fun. The show has “grooved” audiences over the past 10 years with excitement and flair that has crowds singing, dancing and laughing. Advance, discounted tickets for both shows are available at the CSD office, Bel Air in Cameron Park or at showclix.com. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concerts start at 7 p.m.; snacks and beverages will be sold.
Looking to keep that New Year’s health resolution? Sign up for a jazzercise, Zumba, yoga, belly fit or ballroom dance class; younger ones can try baby ballet, pre ballet/tap, taekwondo, gymnastics or hula. Itching to learn a new skill this year? CPR, hunter safety and first aid classes are also available.
In addition to the classes above, mature adults can check out the Tai Chi for Better Balance class or play bingo on January 12 at 1 p.m. The 50+ Room hosts a variety of activities, too, and is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are varying happenings each week, so be sure to look online at the calendar.
