Sign Up Now for WNCC Community Education Classes

Want to learn how to defend yourself from an attacker, learn ballroom dance, or travel for less money? Non-credit, community education classes about these and many more subjects are on tap this spring at Western Nevada Community College Carson City.

"We are excited to be able to offer so many interesting and affordable classes on our campus," WNCC Continuing Education Coordinator Linda Whitehill said. "Many of these classes will fill up fast, so students are encouraged to sign up soon."

Two popular classes featured are Tae Kwon Do For Life (CMSV 140C, call #17022, Sec. C01) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Jan. 23 through March 17, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. and Women's Self Defense (CMSV 098C, call #10909, Sec. C01) on Thursdays, Jan. 26 through Feb. 23, from 7-8:30 p.m.

Ballroom Dance (CMSV 125C, call #17010, Sec. C01) will meet on Tuesdays, Jan. 24 through May 16, from 7-9 p.m.

Students learn three social dances they can use in nightclubs and ballrooms. No partner is required and different dances are taught each semester.

One of the most interesting classes offered this semester is the Art of Discount Travel (CMSV 077C, call #17247, Sec. C01) on Thursday, April 27, from 6-9:30 p.m. The class will cover a wealth of proven strategies that save money on airline fares, accommodations, tours, car rentals, cruises and resort packages. Strategies can potentially save as much as 70 percent on travel, so the $45 class fee can be made up very quickly.

The Tae Kwon Do class will help students develop coordination, confidence, self-control, concentration, and the self-discipline to defend oneself yet never attack others. Women's Self Defense is a no-nonsense course that will provide strategies for staying out of trouble, tactics for getting out of trouble, improvised weapons and environmental fighting.

Other interesting classes include an Introduction to Feng Shui Workshop, Basic Quilting, Swing Dance, Renaissance Swordsmanship, Beginning Genealogy, Ghost Hunting, Private Pilot Ground School, and Helping Women Manage Their Money. Some of the standard and most popular classes offered are CPR, Driver's Training, Nevada Traffic Safety School, and the Motorcycle Rider Course.

"We have a little something to offer for everyone, even seniors," Whitehill added.

A 20 percent discount is offered to Nevada residents 62 years of age or older on these community education classes, excluding Driver's Training and Motorcycle Safety. Senior students do not have to pay registration, application or admission fees, but must pay a $4 per credit technology fee.

Spring semester classes begin Monday, Jan. 23. For more information call Linda Whitehill at 775-445-4268.
