  • Get inside and dance

    Beat the winter doldrums; feed your mind and body | “It’s my happy time!” declares Susie Crosier as she’s leaving her modern dance class to go right into the hip hop session at Greenwood’s American Dance Institute on a Sunday afternoon. As the days get grayer, damper, and shorter, “happy time” becomes more elusive for many. Many of us Seattlelites find our zen and our thrills in the outdoors—hiking, kayaking, rock climbing—but those opportunities become fewer as winter sets in. Liz and Dave Luba regularly take advantage of all the Pacific Northwest has to offer, but started taking tango with Tony Fan and Ilana Rubin eight years ago because they felt they were missing a creative art form in their life. “It’s a nice complement,” says Liz, “and we’ve met an interesting cross-section of people we never would have met.” Indeed, looking around the full classroom, the age-range, diversity, and welcoming feeling are obvious.

  • Advocate for our community’s seniors

    Wow! The PNA does NOT own the Greenwood Senior Center building! PNA has been working with the City of Seattle since 2010 to transfer the Greenwood Senior Center to the PNA. The City has expressed their commitment to this transfer, but it still hasn’t happened. It's important we own the building, so we can make much needed improvements, especially for accessibility. The City Council passed a budget resolution a few weeks ago, asking the Mayor to complete the transfer by the end of March. We wanted to help, and kicked off advocacy efforts at Winter Festival last weekend. Over 1,000 people signed a giant card to the City Council and the Mayor, and we took a field trip to City Hall to deliver it. We also kicked off a postcard and email writing campaign this week, encouraging community members to write to the Mayor and City Council to tell them how important this property transfer is. You can also help! Take 5 minutes to send an email to the Mayor and City Council, thanking the City Council and urging the Mayor to approve and complete the transfer. Read more
