Dance

Check the newsletters of each Center to see where dance classes are being offered. No dancing experience required. Line Dancing: Line dancing burns calories, increases metabolism, stimulates endorphins, relieves depression and anxiety, and in addition, is a general all-around stress reducer. When we get our bodies moving to some stimulating music and learn new steps to a few line dances, it increases confidence and stimulates our brain.

Computers

FREE for our members, the computer labs in both Centers are available for Montco SAAC members to practice their skills, email friends, and use the Internet. Basic computer skills are necessary. Instruction is not provided.

Classes

Each center offers a variety of ongoing and special classes. Included are creative arts such as painting, sculpture and jewelry making. Craft classes include quilt making and the sewing arts.

There are educational classes on real estate, financial planning, legal assistance, tax assistance and the 55 Alive Defensive Driving Course.

For fun, we have classes on card games such as bridge, pinochle and poker.

Classes are developed on the interests of members and trends in the communities we serve.

Facility Rental

The Centers in Norristown and Ambler are ideal for weddings, anniversary receptions, meetings, family gatherings and other special events. Rooms can accommodate groups as small as 10 or as large as 200.
