FiftyForward operates seven centers in Davidson and Williamson counties for active adults age 50 and older.
Five of FiftyForward’s seven centers are accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC). Of roughly 15,000 senior centers across the country, these five are among only 150 or so NISC-accredited centers.
FiftyForward centers offer more than 100 instructional day and evening classes and activities for their members’ personal growth, health, wellness, and community involvement. Some classes are taught at all centers; others are unique to a specific center.
Exercise classes range from Tai Chi and yoga to the SilverSneakers® Fitness Program, along with ballroom, line, square or tap dancing. Fine arts classes include oil painting and watercolors or specialties like portraiture. Creative writing, foreign languages, and computer classes are also popular. Special interest groups cater to singles, couples, men, and women.
