Icy Elf 5K @ Waldoboro Village

Icy Elf 5K @ Waldoboro Village

Santa Claus is coming to town and the elves will be working hard all day to get Waldoboro ready for his arrival. But it’s bound to be cold, so we’re organizing a 5K to get everyone’s blood moving and warm before Santa shows up.

So join us for our 2nd annual festive run through town. We’ll have hot chocolate and candy canes and Christmas lights and prizes (even one for the best dressed elf). Local businesses will be open late with hot drinks and snacks and things you can buy to finish off your Christmas shopping.

We’ll have Christmas-themed age group prizes. Plus, an Elf at the finish line to congratulate you on your run. And so many more prizes and giveaways to announce as we get closer to race day.

Registration is $15 until September 1st. $20 on race day. You can also register in advance at Long Winter Soap Co in the Village.

The Kid’s Run is free.

Walkers are always welcome!

Monies raised go toward efforts to revitalize and promote the historic Waldoboro Village.

If you skip this race, you’ll end up on the naughty list.

Beginner Tap Dancing Class @ Portland Adult Education
Jan 4 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Beginner Tap Dancing Class @ Portland Adult Education

Haven’t you always wanted to learn how to tap dance? Or maybe you danced as a kid and have been yearning to pick it up again? Now is your chance!

Beginner tap dance classes start with simple exercises and work up to short sequences using what you have learned. Classes are aimed at total beginners or dancers who want to brush up on their technique and are designed to be repeated.

Tap shoes are not required! Any smooth or leather-soled shoes are fine to start. I also have a few loaner pairs.

Location: Portland Adult Education Building, 14 Locust St. Portland, ME, Room 11 (upstairs)
The entrance for the parking lot is on Cumberland Ave. right next to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (near the intersection of Cumberland and Boyd).
The entrance to the PAE building is from the parking lot/Cathedral side. Parking is usually available in the lot unless there is an event at the church.

Cost: $12/class or $72 if you pay for the whole session

2020 Winter Session #1: 1/4, 1/11, 1/25, 2/1, 2/8, 2/29, 3/7. $72 for 7 weeks.

Beginner Swing Dancing/8-Count Lindy Hop

Anybody can dance and we’ll show you how! We’ll break down the basics into simple chunks and give you lots of time to practice. You’ll get your body moving and laugh with your classmates while you listen to some of the greatest music ever! You don’t need a partner and you don’t need any dance experience.

Mondays at Pepperell Center, 40 Main St. Biddeford, 2nd Floor
6-7 pm – Beginner Swing Dancing (7-week class)
7-7:15 pm – Mini-Practice Session

$70 per person for all 7 weeks
Drop in $12 per person
Try the first class for $12 and if you decide to stay for the rest of the session, you can pay the balance instead of the drop-in rate.

(Dropping in is fine for the first 2 weeks of class, but lessons are progressive so we recommend waiting until the next session starts after week 2.)
