Fencing - Youth and Adult

99.00

Fencing is a sport of combat that originally started as practice for dueling with swords. Since that time it has grown into a modern sport while maintaining those virtues that made it great; honor, valor, grace. Master Bloch’s fencing program is designed with safety and learning in mind. In our Salle (school) beginners are not thrown in with one another and told to “fence”. Rather, the classic French footwork and blade work is emphasized first. In this way we assure not only the safety of our students but, by laying a good foundation of learning, all students have the ability to become great fencers.

Learn the fine points of fencing.  Students, please bring a water bottle, sneakers and comfortable clothing. 

Those under age 18 must have a completed consent form.

Dates:

Ages 8-16   6:15-7:15 PM

A) Wed, Jan 17 – Mar 14 (no classes 2/21)

Fee: $99

Midwinter Mischief Old Sturbridge Village

Midwinter Mischief
 

SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 2018 TO SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, 2018

Imagine the tale of a Yankee peddler passing through the village who decides to settle down at the Bullard Tavern on a cold winter's night. There the peddler spends every dollar he has earned on food and drink, racking up a tab far beyond his means. After being confronted over his debt, the peddler fills up his cup with ashes from the hearth and promises the tavern owner that he will return with a cup overflowing of gold. From the Bullard Tavern, costumed storytellers, artisans, and villagers will entice tavern guests to wander deep into the village where they will find evidence of the peddler’s adventures and schemes.

Admission to a Midwinter Mischief includes the two-hour outdoor/indoor experience and a period-inspired meal in the Village’s Bullard Tavern where guests can enjoy live music, demonstrations, and a cash bar featuring hot beverages and 1830s-inspired libations. Each day, the first experience departs the Visitor Center at 9:00 am and the last at 3:00 pm, with experiences beginning every 20 minutes (except for noon and 12:20). After your adventure, you will be led to the Bullard Tavern Great Room where you can enjoy your inclusive hearty soup or stew meal (soup options include Beef Stew (gluten-free), Tomato Vegetable (gluten-free and vegan), and New England Clam Chowder.

"Storytelling" - New - Brimfield Senior Center

New: with Colleen Lowe-Smith

Beginning January 22  10:30 AM   Mondays Finishing March 26, 2018

Descended from an ancestry with “the gift of gab” Colleen has always loved sharing and listening to stories.  For over 20 years she mastered the skills with children, having taught in Montessori schools in New Zealand and in seven different states in the USA.  Colleen holds an MFA in writing, which broadened her understanding of story crafting. In these days especially of distraction with technology, Colleen is passionate about cultivating human connection in the community by creating storytelling groups. In this group, he will reflect together on our life experiences and practice the art of listening as well as telling. Learn about the discussion the different kinds of stories (I. E. quest, comedy, tragedy, advisory, rebirth, journey and return, etc.) and consider elements (character, setting, sensory) to flesh out our own stories. We will celebrate one another’s unique stories, inspire one another, create empathy, discover wisdom, and provoke one another to reflect more deeply on our own experiences. Ideally this group will culminate in a storytelling performance. Please join us on January 22 to meet with Colleen and get started on your storytelling journey. We are thrilled to have her share her talent and experience with us and there is no cost to you for this 10 week program. Please call to register as his class is limited in size.  Call 413 – 245 – 7253 or 413 – 245 – 2889.
