Dancing on the Lawn!

danceWednesday, August 3 at 10:00 AM for children and 6:30 PM for adults & school age children.


At 10:00 AM the children will dance the morning away with Veronica Domingo!

Veronica Domingo was trained as a Zumba Instructor in 2010 by Tanya Beardsley and is licensed to offer classes in Zumba Basic, Zumba B2, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, Zumba Kids, and Zumba Kids Jr. Raised on Jazzercise, Gilad Jankowitz, and Denise Austin, she developed a “love-hate” relationship with fitness after her son was born – until she discovered the Zumba fitness program, which she describes as “inspiring” and “the most fun and gratifying way to get in shape.” A member of the Zumba Instructor Network, Domingo teaches part-time at a dance studio in Catskill and at the Greene County YMCA. She is also the senior program curriculum developer at the Omega Institute.

At 6:30 PM. we’ll dance the evening away with Mary Carey!

We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an intervalstyle, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Emergency Preparedness Training

Red Cross Ready
Thursday, August 4, 6:00 PM

Be prepared instead of panicked! The Claverack Free Library is pleased to host the American Red Cross FREE Citizen Preparedness Corps training.

How does your household receive emergency alerts? How will you connect with your family if you are not all in the same place during an emergency? Where will you meet? How will you let loved ones know you are safe? What will you do if phones don’t work? If there is no power? How about pets?

We all know that preparation is important, yet few of us have organized supplies or designed plans. The training provides information about common types of natural and man-made disasters and teaches effective ways to prepare for, respond to, and recover from them as an individual, family and community. Attendees will learn to develop a household plan, both for remaining at home during situations like a power outage (a “stay kit”) and for leaving home rapidly during disasters such as fire or flood (a “go kit”).

Bring your questions and stay for refreshments.
Registration is encouraged.
Please call 518-851-7120 or email news@claveracklibrary.org.
