Ethics in the Age of TrumpEthics in the Age of Trump
Tuesday, February 27, 3:30 - 5:00pm

John Bradley writes, "By action and word our current President has provoked the questioning of our basic assumptions about right and wrong, good and bad, and even the standards by which we distinguish between the true and the false.  Our abiding beliefs about virtue and vice have been rattled, and we have been called to the barricades to defend heartfelt convictions about the makeup of the good society and our obligations as citizens, neighbors and family members."  This presentation and the discussion that will follow, will help us to make sense of the current ethical malaise and meet the challenge it poses to good government and right action.

Bradley, a long-time resident of Larchmont, received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from New York University having written his doctoral dissertation on the moral philosophy of R.M. Hare, whose ethical writings centered on the logical analysis of moral language.

Dance for Parkinson's DiseaseDance for Parkinson's Disease
Wednesdays at 1:30pm; Fridays at 1:45pm

The Rye Arts Center is committed to making the arts accessible to those with varying abilities and backgrounds.  These specialized classes stimulate mind, body and emotion in an enjoyable and safe environment. They offer participants the opportunity to learn from professionally trained dancers about stretching and strengthening muscles, with an emphasis on enhancing physical awareness and grace through modern, ballet and folk dance forms.

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms. Free.
