Dance Fitness Group @ Restaurante Montevideo, Benitachell
Jan 21 @ 10:00 – 11:00

 

 

Frequency: Weekly:  There are three groups –

  • Monday – 9.45 to 10.30am  (This class is open to members and non members)
  • Monday- 1045 to 11.30 am (This class is essentially for U3A members)
  • Thursday- 10 to 11am  (This class is open to members and non members)

Group Leader: Pam Small

A dance fitness workout (you don’t need a partner), is designed for people who love to dance and want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons, prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact and perhaps a slower pace.

It combines old-style dance genres such as the Bossa Nova and Foxtrot, to the Flamenco and the Argentine Tango.

The dance steps are easier to follow, enabling more participants to have fun getting fit, while learning classic dances of the ages. The classes are an hour long and  the cost is 5 euros to include coffee after.

From time to time Danceathons and Charity classes are held to raiase money for charity – and have a bit of fun!

 

Pétanque 2 @ Purpose built rinks at Cumbre del Sol

Frequency: Weekly: Thursday 10:00 – 14:00

Venue: Purpose built rinks at Cumbre del Sol

Group Leader: Pamela Powell group-petanque2@u3amoraira-teulada.org

Owing to the huge success of the original pétanque group, It was decided to run a second group which meets on Thursday mornings at the courts on the Cumbre del Sol.  Afterwards, we go for coffee at a local bar.

It’s a very easy game to learn and you can be winning almost immediately!

What is Pétanque?

Pétanque (in French) is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet or Jack.

The object of the game is to throw your balls – usually with an arched back-spin – so that they land closer to the small object ball (jack) than those of your opponent, or strike and drive the object ball toward your other balls and away from your opponent’s.

The only really essential equipment is a set of steel boules (three minimum). A set costs anywhere from 12 euros upwards from most Chinese shops. However come along and try a game first to see if you want to join the group, and buy your own set after that if you do then decide to join.

Spanish Conversation Intermediate @ Golden Bay
Jan 23 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Group Leader: Sheila ShipsidesA coffee morning with a difference! You need to be familiar with the different Spanish verb tenses and endings, have learnt grammar fairly thoroughly and have a certain amount of vocabulary to be able to participate as we have no teacher – you will find that you learn from some and help others.

We sit at tables of four or less so everyone gets their say. The idea is to practice in a relaxed way what we have already learnt in class. After quite a short time we are finding that we can think more quickly and consequently are becoming more fluent.


If you would like to come along, please email me Sheila Shipsides by email: group-spanish-intermediate@u3amoraira-teulada.org

Reading @ Pan y Pan, Sol Park
Jan 29 @ 15:00 – 17:00
Frequency:  Monthly: Last Friday 15:00 – 17:00
Venue: Pan y Pan, Sol Park, Moraira
Group Leader:  Gaby MaugerThe group explores all types of literature including plays, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, classics, contemporary and several prize winning foreign authors.

We currently (April 2012) have a membership of 14 people, 7 of whom attended the very first meeting and have remained committed and supportive of the group. As with all of the U3A groups there is a great deal of coming and going between UK and Spain so at the monthly meeting about 7 – 9 people usually attend.

Our meetings are fun and always light-hearted. The level of discussion really depends on the book – quite often half the group love it and the other half hate it! This always makes for a great chat!

Only 2 rules. You must commit to reading the book (even if you hate it) and please let me know if you can’t attend … I would feel really silly sitting alone waiting for people who are not coming!!

So if you love reading and always like to talk about the book with other people afterwards, the Reading Group may be just for you.

Solo Amigos (singles) @ Pan y Pan, Sol Park, Moraira
Feb 8 @ 11:00

Frequency:   Monthly:  2nd Monday at 11.00am

Venue:   Bar El Martillo, Moraira (Underneath Pepe La Sal (by the roundabout on the road from Moraira to Teulada)

Group leader:  Sheran Williams

This group is for those who find themselves ‘solo’ for whatever reason, and would like to make new friends and take part in fun activities.
The events are organised by individual members of the group, depending on their interests, and email contacts are coordinated by the group leader, Sheran(she’s very well organised!).

Anyone can suggest an activity, so we always have a variety of ideas from simple coffee meet-ups, drinks evenings and lunches, to walks, mini golf, live music from local bands in bars to larger concerts at La Senieta in Moraira, with popular tribute acts and much more.
Not to mention dancing at Saxo in Moraira!
Anything goes if you can persuade a group of us to share your interests.

We are a large friendly group and people “dip into” our events when it suits them.
The average number of SoloAmigos at any activity is usually around 8-15 members, so it’s never such a big gathering that you would feel left out.  We’re very welcoming, so give us a try!

We now have our own group blog / website, so you can see our latest events and get an idea of what we get up to and what we look like!
