Once the chapters/scenes are lined out with simple bullet point phrases, the class will learn how to break down the information into bullet point subheads which will be the backbone of their book. Once the outline is fleshed out, the instructor will use his experience in writing seven books as well as having published 17 books by various authors. He will be encouraging class attendees to make a mockup of a cover for their book, as well, to help keep their motivation level up.

A Story of Hope Eighteen months ago, I arrived at Belle Terre Swim & Racquet Club with my oxygen tank in tow. Over-weight, and ashamed I struggled to walk. On arrival I was greeted with Deen’s warm smile and a look of concern. Showing me patiently how to use the exercise machines, he outlined a simple fitness program to meet my needs (easy to say now). So my new journey into a healthier life began. I hardly noticed anyone else in the gym although there were many voices. Unaware as yet of any real motivation to improve my health, I continued to go every day. Slowly my energy level improved. I began to lose weight. Despite feeling weak, depressed and embarrassed I progressed to the treadmill and to increase the weights. After six months, I required emergency surgery for additional health issues. I returned to the gym a few weeks later now fearful of sliding back into depression and ill health. My new life had just begun. Eight months now without any oxygen! I wear a size six (down from a 2X)! I feel great! All it took for me was the smallest degree of willingness to ask for help, follow direction and simply show up. People from all walks of life, many parts of this country and the world, of various ages have found each other at BTSRC. I am honored to be among them. I had learned many things in the past 25 years being in recovery from many things. I applied these tools of living to my physical health. Did I believe I could do this? No! Others believed in me until I could believe in myself. My body, mind, and spirit have been renewed. I have a new sense of meaning and purpose. Going to the gym, seeing all my friends, and being able to live my life to the fullest is a joy. I am truly grateful. Thank you all for loving me back to health. I am grateful.

The Art of Dance Introducing your child to the art of dance at a young age sets the scene for a future that includes creative movement, flexibility, physical fitness, performance skills, and cultural appreciation. With classes for children as young as two years old through teens and adults, the North East Florida Dance Academy (NEFDA), through the Flagler County Schools’ Adult and Community Education Department, offers a wide variety of dance genres to interest students of all ages. NEFDA is dedicated to providing classical dance training with instructors who hold Bachelor’s Degrees in Education, teaching certificates from Dance Masters of America and Dance Educators of America, and who conduct classes with the utmost professionalism. Daily classes are offered year round in ballet, tap, and acrobatics at progressive levels. Children ages 2 to 3 ½ also have fun with Creative Dance, those ages 4 to 5 ½ may participate in a special Pre-School Dance class. As children get older they may join classes in jazz, musical theatre, lyrical, and hip hop styles of dance. Children 12 and older may advance to Ballet on Pointe. Class fees are very reasonable and discounts are offered for multiple and combination classes. Students enjoy the excitement of performing at the annual end of year recital, and other dance performance experiences. Encourage your children in the arts and let them experience the joy of dance and performance.
