The coming of spring brings a range of new programs at Cumberland Recreation, with activities offered for all ages and stages.

New dance programs, Creative Dance for preschoolers and Beginner Ballet (6-8 yrs), enhance self-expression and body-awareness while developing basic fundamentals of dance.

Other new and unique programs include gyrokinesis, a low-impact strength and movement class for adults. There will be a free gyrokinesis class on May 10 so people can find out what it is all about.

On May 6, get creative while sipping and socializing as you create your own macrame hanging plant terrarium at the Waverley Hotel.

Ethnic cooking classes, offered in three sessions, will treat your taste buds to Lebanese, Thai and East Indian cuisine. In addition, Cumberland Recreation offers a full range of fitness classes that include TRX, kettlebell and spin.

Moms and toddlers are welcome in the Mommy Moves classes and TRX Combo class that includes loads of toddler toys and playground equipment. Free trial classes are offered for select programs such as Iyengar Yoga, gyrokinesis and TRX Combo & Tot Gym.

Cumberland Recreation continues to offer a range of free programs for youth and families that are supported by local partnerships. Registration for all programs can be completed online at, over the phone at 336-2231 or in person.
