Rocklin Parks and Recreation
● By Style
November brings families together and cooler temperatures carry us inside.
Rocklin Parks and Recreation has an abundance of activities to keep you and your family active and healthy at an affordable price.
How about trying a clogging class? Join Janice Hanzel, a certified clogging instructor with more than 30 years of teaching experience, in this noisy American folk dance. Classes are held Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Rocklin Community Center.
If aerobics is more your style, Terri Hinojoso has the moves to keep you fit. This low-impact exercise program, designed for all ages, is performed to a wide variety of upbeat music; classes (held at the Rocklin Community Center) include stretching, floor exercises and aerobic dance, followed by cool-down stretches to prevent soreness.
For the over-50 crowd, Sue Inman offers a stretch and fitness class, which builds strength, tones, and increases flexibility of the more mature body. It combines a warm-up, easy stretches, non-aerobic movement, floor exercises and a quiet cool down for a fun and relaxing workout. Classes meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Parkview Activity Room.
The little ones can join instructor Alycia Tonna for a Mommy and Me Play Group, Pre-Preschool, or the Itty Bitty Workshop for social and educational fun; moms can meet other local moms, too. In these parent-participation playgroups, workshops and activities, you and your tot will have fun creating, learning and playing together.
With Christmas right around the corner, don’t forget to purchase your tickets for Breakfast with Santa on December 21. Now in its third year, this family event is geared toward area preschool-age children and their families. After breakfast (provided by local Boy Scout Troop 29), attendees will be treated with a visit to King Kandy’s Workshop where they will engage in a variety of activities hosted by local businesses and organizations. There is a limit of six tickets per family; this annual event has sold out the previous two years, so purchase your tickets early!
