Lennie is Lovely!

Didn't quite know what to expect from this class, but it was great fun! Not for the faint hearted or rhythmically challenged, however, Lennie's teaching style was patient and reassuring. Helpful if you have some coordination, but not absolutely necessary, as shaking, rattling, banging, clapping and dancing made me feel like a kid again. Well worth the price.
