Westfield 'Y' Offering T'ai Chi This Summer
The Westfield "Y," located at 220 Clark Street, will be offering a "Taste of T'ai Chi" during the summer session, beginning on Thursday, June 25.
The participants of this course, taught by Don Madson, will learn the introductory 12- posture short form of this ancient Chinese exercise and self- defense system.
T'ai Chi Ch'uan does not depend on the muscle- building, highly aerobic activities of "western" exercises. Attention is paid to connective tissue flexibility, promotion of proper balance and posture, and correct weight shifting.
Practiced slowly, with total control of one's body, is the goal. This traditional martial art form serves to improve balance, enhance breathing efficiency, lower blood pressure, promote flexibility, decrease heart rate, and improve circulation, said Karen Simon, a spokeswoman for the "Y."
Mr. Madson emphasizes the physical and mental conditioning aspects of T'ai Chi. It is especially suitable for mature adults, since there are no extreme physical demands on the muscles. The relaxation of muscles and learning to shift weight properly is a basic focus while also paying attention to balance control.
Registration is this Saturday, June 13, for current members and this Wednesday, June 17, for new members. For more information, please call Ms. Simon at (908) 233- 2700, Extension No. 246.

To find out more information about this program, please call Mr. Weiss at (908) 486- 5218.
The Youth Outreach program is designed to encourage and actively promote the experience of singing four- part harmony among men in the Mid- Atlantic District of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA).
The society fosters the establishment of groups of harmony singers in area schools as an integral part of the school curriculum to provide an outlet for performance and/ or competition for singers and to develop a sense of singing as a rewarding life long activity, Mr. Weiss explained.
He said Harmony Explosion provides young men with some new positive ideas about leisure time singing. It basically is an a capella club created by SPEBSQSA to interest and involve high- school and college- aged men in four- part harmony. Harmony Explosion features Barbershop harmony that is arranged
especially for the young male voice. Sweet Adelines International has similar programs for girls and they can run parallel to Harmony Explosion. Harmony Explosion adds mixed voices (male or female) as well as the major concert choir.

So much now is being written That we didn't comprehend Dad's a 50- 50 partner From beginning to the end.
