February Brings Exciting New Programs to The Bay!
Who’s ready to get moving? We are launching three new health & fitness programs this month! Whatever your speed, we’ve got something for you. From Namasté at The Bay to Zumba to Camp Gladiator, February is a great time to get healthy & fit at The Bay.
This month, we are also offering a few special programs in honor of Black History Month, an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Join us for a performance by Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, a presentation by Modern Marimba and a screening of Disney’s Princess & The Frog.
