     6 Steps to Better Balance is a fun and innovative approach to help seniors avoid the fears and injuries associated with falling. New classes are scheduled to begin Feb. 13 at Springside at Seneca Hill and are sponsored by RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program). Classes will be held on Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

     Developed by Dr. Betty Perkins-Carpenter, a nationally renowned expert in fall prevention, the six-week program aims to:
     Improve flexibility and mobility
     Increase leg strength
     Uncover the body's natural ability to balance
     Increase confidence
     You can expect to learn things like the "Jiggle Wiggle" and the "10-Martini Slump," all designed to keep you safe.
     If interested, there will be an informational meeting at 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 5, in the exercise room at Springside.
     To register for the class, call Rachel Brooks at 963-1069.
