August is here, which means many chances to learn, play and get involved in the Brays Oaks community. To help you get out of the house (and, perhaps, off the school open house circuit), here are a few events that have something for everyone.

Line Dancing Classes at the Morris Frank Library, Saturdays in August, 11:30am-1:00pm

Every Saturday in August, you can join other line dance lovers to hone your skills and move to your favorite country music. The classes are free, and double as great cardio for those looking for a fitness component to their Saturday morning excursions. The classes have limited space, so contact the library in advance to make sure you snag a spot.

One Voice, One Vibe, One Community, Evelyn Rubenstein JCC, August 20th, 4:00pm

Out of the devastation of the Meyerland floods comes One Voice, One Vibe, One Community. With music from former Houstonian Dr. Desmond Ikegwuonu, and commemorative text by Jewish Community Center members, the event will showcase the JCC’s efforts to rebuild, reconnect, and revitalize Meyerland, and their commitment to the future of the neighborhood and the surrounding community.

Water Aerobics, Chancellors Family Center, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 9:30am

Looking to get your blood pumping without having to brave the Texas heat? Chancellors Family Center hosts water aerobics four days per week, giving you plenty of schedule-pleasing options for suiting up and enjoying a class. Participants are encouraged to move at their own pace, making the class as easy or as hard as you need to de-stress from your week.

Open Gym Volleyball, Spike Sport Club, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays

If you need a more fast-paced workout (or a chance to meet others interested in volleyball), Spike Sport Club has you covered. For just five dollars, you can join other volleyball enthusiasts for a fun, casual game of volleyball or three. Participant skill level varies, and games are organized by the staff, so there’s no need to worry if you show up amateur or alone.
