I-House adds 3 dance classes to weekly schedule

International House, Davis, is offering three dance classes a week at its 10 College Park location in addition to its ongoing Monday night yoga class.

“Students and community members have asked for dance classes,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director. “So we have found a great tango instructor, Damien Kima of Sacramento, and a great couple from Colombia, Carlos Galeano and Katherine Tehelen, to teach salsa.

“We also have a student volunteer, Zaira Lopez, who is a certified instructor, teaching zumba on Mondays at 8 p.m. after yoga,” she added.

Yoga, zumba, tango and salsa classes are all free to I-House members. Others are asked to contribute $7 per class for salsa and tango and $10 for zumba. The Monday night zumba class will end on June 10.

The salsa class — for couples only — will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesdays. The class will not be held April 23 but will start again May 7 and run weekly. If you need a partner, come to I-House and see if you can be matched up at the class.

The first tango class at I-House attracted about 26 people, evenly split between men and women. The tango class meets on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and runs weekly.

“We also had an excellent turnout at our Jewish cooking class on Thursday, taught by Sara Brownstein,” Sherwin said. “The cooking classes and dance classes are very popular.”

The next cooking class, at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 25, features a Zimbabwean meal and will be taught by Nathalie Minya. Call 530-753-5007 to reserve your place. The cost is $10 for members or $15 for nonmembers.

“I-House exists to introduce people to new cultures,” Sherwin said. “If we are familiar with other cultures, it is hard to be afraid of them.”

For more information, or to volunteer to teach a cooking, dance or language class, contact Sherwin at dir@internationalhousedavis.org.
