The city of Davis will offering several special interest classes for adults this spring, providing opportunities to learn a new skill, meet new people and have fun.

Basic Open Water Scuba Certification: This scuba course is a mix of classroom sessions, DVD learning material, online training, home-based learning and confined water training. Students will learn all aspects of scuba from the basics of breathing under water, buoyancy control and basic safety to light rescue.

All skills and knowledge will be combined into an open water dive weekend in Monterey Bay for the open water certification. On each day of the weekend, participants will make three dives to complete their training as a basic open water diver.

The class, designed for ages 10 and older, meets from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, March 4 through April 7, at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St., and at Manor Pool, 1525 Tulip Lane in Manor Park. The fee is $181 plus an additional $85 materials fee due to the instructor on the first day of class.

There is an $85 materials fee payable to the instructor on the first day.

Doggy Etiquette 101: Instructor Melissa Morris will lead a fast-paced, six-week, hands-on course, where participants and their dogs will have fun together while learning the tools to turn pooches into well-behaved family pets.

“Using positive methods, your dog will learn to look to you for guidance, say please by sitting for everything he wants, politely greet people and much more,” a news release said.

All dogs 8 weeks and older are welcome; dogs must be vaccinated.

The class, for ages 18 and older, meets from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, March 7 through April 11, at the Central Park pavilion in downtown Davis. The fee is $80 plus a $30 materials fee payable to instructor on the first day of class (includes book and DVD).

Choral Class: Participants will sing several favorites from the annals of rock, jazz, rhythm and blues and gospel music, improving their singing ability, developing their stage presence or simply singing for fun.

Instructor Steve Geller earned a Ph.D. in music theory and composition from UC Davis and has teaching theory, musicology, voice and piano lessons for 18 years. No previous musical experience is necessary.

The class, for ages 18 and older, runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, March 12 through April 9, at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. The fee is $80.

 

Registration is accepted at the city of Davis Community Services Office, 600 A St., Suite C, or online at www.cityofdavis.org. For more information, call 530-757-5626.
