We will look into the influences of media, the importance of a healthy diet, confidence building, and much more with the support of your peers around you. Lots of theater games, team building activities, snacks, DIY crafts and tons of fun. These classes will happen on Tuesday’s from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. starting Jan. 22 to Feb. 26 with instructor Richele Wright.
