Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. The dance teacher, Ms Lisa Oster, uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group.  

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it. Join us to learn how to meditate!

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group.  

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day

can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to

show you what to do and how to do it. Join us to learn how to meditate!

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative

“The place has entered me...it has coloured my life like a stain.”     Adam Nicolson

Most stories are set in a place  Sometimes, the place doesn't matter much, doesn't seem to have much impact on the story being told.  but other times, the place is so big a part of the story, it can seem like another character.  Certainly, it seems some stories can only exist in certain places.
