Gymnastics classes are offered by the Kershaw County Recreation Department and Wateree Gymnastics of Camden.

Classes are divided by age and offered each Wednesday. Topics include gym safety, mounts and dismounts, over, under and through, cartwheels, nutrition, strength, balance and coordination and working as a team.

The cost for the classes is $25 per month.

Pre-registration is required.

Line dance steps

The chance to learn the Electric Slide and other popular steps is here. And with the addition of morning classes, there’s a session to fit almost any schedule.

Line dance is a great stress reducer and emotional release as well as good exercise, providing much the same benefits as low-impact aerobics. Increase energy, improve strength and muscle tone. Age is no factor. And you can build your stamina while having fun. Come with a friend or spouse or come alone; you don’t need a partner for line dance.

Join the Rec Department’s four-week line dance classes, offered for beginners from 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays. Intermediate classes are available from 7 to 8 p.m. Mondays.

The cost is $15 a month or $4 per class. Instructor for line dance is Ann Segars, licensed by BMI-ASCAP, National Teachers of Line Dance. For more information, call the Rec Department.

Yoga

Yoga relieves tension and improves physical and mental health.

Yoga classes at the Kershaw County Recreation Department's Old Armory regularly meet from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays. Instructor Scott Freiberg says those who practice yoga look younger and experience improvement in general health, personal appearance, mental outlook and emotional stability, regardless of age or present physical condition.

The cost is $36 for four weeks.

Tonetics

Want to get in shape without all the running, jumping and bouncing? Try Tonetics -- a deep-muscle exercise class involving walking, stretching, bar usage and more.

The purpose is to tone and lose inches, while working all major muscle groups to achieve an all-over muscle fitness.

Two courses are offered, meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays. One class is from 5:15 to 6 p.m. for five weeks at a cost of $20 or 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. for five weeks at a cost of $25.

The instructor is Pam Boheler. Call 425-6010 for more information.

Tae-Kwon-Do classes
