In Wednesday’s class, Life Course Scholars (LCS) from previous years came to share their thoughts about their Healthy Aging Projects (HAPs). The group that was responsible for the ‘Casa de Manana Dance’ and the ‘West Center Senior Prom’ last school year, gave us tips on what we should do as a class when planning for these two events, which will occur in the beginning of March. Since I signed up to be a member of the Activities Committee, I paid close attention to what LCS have done in the past in regards to activities. Based on what I heard, it is a good idea to set up a photo booth and buy props from the dollar tree to make photo taking fun! Although I’ve never set up a photo booth before, I’m sure that once my group and I come together, this task should not be too difficult. We were also told that it would be a good idea to create a music playlist that contains the big hits from the 60s, 70s, and 80s and to think about hiring a dance instructor. I honestly think the process of finding music from the past will be very interesting because right now I only know music from the 80s, not so much from the 70s and 60s. Perhaps through this new exposure, I might discover new music that I truly like and can add to my personal playlist. In regards to hiring a dance instructor, I’m not really sure how one can go about doing that. Right now, I only know there are student orgs at UCSD that offer dance classes. Perhaps by asking around, my group and I can find a good dance instructor that will be willing to help us in our dance events. Although it is only week 3, and we’re still in the planning stage, I cannot wait until its March, and we start implementing these events. They sound like a lot of FUN!
