Kravitzcenter 150x150
A night at the opera Old Palm-style
March 03, 2014

An enthusiastic group of Old Palm residents recently spent the evening at the nearby Kravis Center, enjoying dinner and the beloved comic opera “The Barber of Seville.” It was a sell-out and no wonder. The opera by Gioachino Rossini premiered in 1816 and nearly 200 years later it remains one of the world’s most famous musical masterpieces. It’s the tale of the flamboyant barber Figaro, who helps a young woman outwit elderly Don Bartolo, who is after her affections and money. One of the highlights was the “Figaro” aria, which is still a showstopper. As always with outings beyond the gates of Old Palm, transportation was provided. All the residents had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy a magnificent night at the opera.

A chance to dance like Fred Astaire
February 17, 2014

Fred Astaire made even the most complex dance moves look effortless. His grace on the dance floor was legendary, causing even the great Mikhail Baryshnikov to comment, âNo dancer can watch Fred Astaire and not know that we all should have been in another business.â Old Palm members and residents can learn to dance à la Fred Astaire when instructors from his namesake dance studio visit the Club. Members will be taught ballroom dances that include the rumba, tango, quick step and salsa. Partners arenât necessary. All thatâs needed is the desire to have fun during the 45-minute sessions (February 19 & 26, March 5 & 12, starting at 3:30PM) As Astaire once advised, âFor ballroom dancing, remember that your partners have their own distinctive styles also.

As usual, the pre-game hype was nonstop as sports analysts and rabid fans gave their opinions on every aspect of the game, from the effect of the weather (zero) to the price of a stadium hot dog ($13). Still, few predicted the outcome of the game Seattle crushed Denver in one of the most dominant, lop-sided victories in Super Bowl history.
