SAVVY SENIOR ACTIVITIES/PROGRAMS

The Calabasas Savvy Senior program includes a variety of classes and excursions that are interesting and exciting for community seniors, men and women 50 years and over, who would like to learn new skills and hobbies, stimulate thinking, or try something new.

Lectures, demonstrations and classes focus on entertainment, fitness, technology, music, fine arts, personal development, hobbies, and arts & crafts. A few examples from the 80 classes are: history of art, opera, yoga, Tai Chi, watercolor or oil painting, dancing, Mah Jongg, Canasta, current events, and cooking. Choose one or more of the diverse excursions, with day trips to museums, gardens, missions, nature sites, and special events. Trips include lunch and transportation, providing an opportunity to make new friends along the way.

CLASSES
Choose from more than eighty classes, scheduled throughout the week, that focus on entertainment, fitness, technology, music, fine arts, personal development, hobbies, and arts & crafts. Learn about the history of art in Europe, Asia and the United States; improve your computer skills; listen to opera and attend a performance; improve your balance with yoga and Tai Chi; and join other like-minded men and women to discuss current events, books, and films. If you have always wanted to learn how to play Mah Jongg, Canasta or other interesting games, you can sign up for instruction, now. The center’s teaching kitchen will offer cooking classes and food demonstrations, followed by sampling the results.

LECTURES AND DEMONSTRATIONS
Seniors who seek active learning and want to increase their knowledge will find a variety of lectures and demonstrations covering subjects including popular music and opera, mental and physical fitness, local history, improving balance and quality of life, instruction to improve computer and smart phone skills, and cooking demonstrations in the center’s teaching kitchen.

EXCURSIONS
Half-day, full day and overnight excursions are researched and previewed so that attendees will enjoy the experience of an interesting get-away, including transportation and lunch. We have visited art museums, automobile and special interest museums, farmers markets, the Hollywood Bowl, whale watching, historical missions and sites, wildlife sanctuaries, and many more. As a group, we have traveled from Santa Barbara to Orange County to enjoy several fascinating places we might not venture to, on our own.

SPEAKER SERIES
Our Annual Calabasas Speakers Series will take place during the months of January, February and March. Well-known speakers will discuss timely topics based on their expertise, followed by a Q & A with the audience and refreshments. Past speakers have included famous books and authors, genetics and agriculture, photography, world-renowned political figures, and first-hand experience with significant world events.

SPECIAL EVENTS AND LUNCHEONS
Each season of the year includes a theme related luncheon or dinner. We have enjoyed a summer social, featuring a luau and Hawaiian dancing. Spring, winter and fall luncheons typically feature entertainment including professional singers, impersonators, comedians, and even an antiques roadshow. These special events provide a wonderful opportunity to socialize with other seniors you’ve met in classes and on excursions, and to meet new members of the center and the community.
