Spring recreation features fresh new classes, all-time favorites

COMMERCE CITY – Spring is almost here, and at the Commerce City Recreation Center , we’re celebrating by adding fresh classes to meet your fitness and creative needs. You’ll find several new activities mixed in with your favorites – check them all out online at c3gov.com (click on Parks and Recreation).

When you find something you like, you can register online as well. Sign up soon – spring classes start in a few weeks.

Older adults can take a free class on grandparents’ rights, enjoy the outdoors on a nature hike or cook up some Italian cuisine while learning the country’s culture in this new class, “Recipes from Around the World.” Other activities include joining a book club, learning to play guitar and going on one of many exciting day-trips that will take you to some interesting places.

For those who enjoy dancing, here’s your chance to learn some ballroom favorites with beginning classes in swing and cha cha cha. For young dancers, ballet, tap, hip hop and Mexican folk dance are popular standards.

The Recreation Center offers all the benefits of a private gym – at about half the cost. Along with fitness classes (free to attend with a membership), professional trainers are on hand for personal training, body fat analysis, weight room orientation, nutrition counseling and more.

The gymnastics program has produced several state title holders in recent years, so if your child likes to be challenged, this is the program for him or her. Classes are offered for all skill levels, and private lessons are also available.

Swimming is always a hit and classes are targeted for a variety of skill and age levels. New classes include lessons for adults and lifeguard training. Plus, there are plenty of open-swim times if you just want to splash around with your family in our huge, indoor pool.

The Recreation Center offers plenty of choices for youth and teens, from drawing to sports to a new babysitter training class. Plus, monthly Teen Jams provide a fun and safe environment for middle school and high school teens.

Youth sports include volleyball and flag football. Football is a co-ed activity with separate divisions for kindergarten, grades 1-2 and grades 3-4. Youth participants love this activity.
