Our second session of 2019/2020 starts in the week beginning 13th January 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: Grove Academy is closed on TUESDAY 26 November, so there will be no BERA that night (the yoga will go ahead at Forthill, of course!)

Firstly, at Grove Academy:

Lindsey’s yoga class takes place in the library on Mondays from 6.30pm and is very popular – £60 for ten weeks.

Spanish classes with José continue on Tuesdays as normal. Last term’s beginners (now called “Nivel 2”) meet from 18.00-19.30, and continuing students (“Nivel 3”!) at 19.30-21.00 – £60 for ten more weeks.

Angela’s Italian classes continue on Thursdays 18.00-19.30 – £60 for ten weeks.

Jean’s Thursday evening meditation, mindfulness and relaxation classes are an opportunity to try a number of different techniques from around the world to help you feel more calm and relaxed (19.00-20.30 – £60). 

Things get a little more physical at Forthill Primary School:

Moira’s 6pm Tuesday night class is popular. Even if you didn’t attend the class before Christmas, feel free to join now – £60 for ten weeks.

Alison’s Pilates class takes place after the Tuesday night yoga (19.50–20.50) – ten weeks cost £40.

Val’s ballroom dancing class at 7pm on Thursday nights is a casual, friendly affair – new dancers (or couples) will be made very welcome! £80 for ten weeks – and a damned good time 🙂

The leaflet has been distributed as usual – look out for it at your local library, and remember to tell all your friends – the more the merrier!

* PLEASE NOTE: Classes can only run if there are enough students to cover the costs. Some classes are very popular which means we are able to subsidise smaller classes to some extent, but each case must be judged on its merits and classes may not run after the first two or three weeks. Every effort will be made to attract as many students as possible.

BERA is run by a committee of volunteers. Anyone is welcome to join, whether they take classes or not.

If you – or someone you know – would like to teach a class, please get in touch!
