From ballet to "Hikes for Tykes" to a walking group for seniors, Needham Park and Recreation is offering a variety of activities for Needham residents of all ages this fall.
Upcoming programs that still have openings include:
Ballet—Come learn how to tendu, chassé and plié in Park and Rec's new ballet location at the Eliot School Performance Center. The program begins Oct. 11 and is open to children ages 4-7.
Itsy Bitsy Arts—A creative workshop geared to the abilities of children ages 3-5 to glue, paint, cut, sprinkle and create unique and age appropriate crafts. Children are required to attend with an adult helper. Program begins Oct. 12.
Hikes for Tykes—A guided hike along the Fitness Trail at Ridge Hill Reservation. Children are required to attend with an adult. There are two sessions available; see the registration page for details.
Adult Coed Volleyball—For players with some experience, with minimal instruction available. Pay one fee for the season, which runs from October through May at the Needham High School gym.
Senior Indoor Walking—Keep in shape during the colder months from October through May with this friendly, supportive group. Walk at your own pace, meet new people and feel better through movement. The program is held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-4 p.m. at Needham High School. Attend one, two or three sessions each week.
