From the Robinson Theater’s page on Live to Serve:

[…] the Robinson Theater Community Arts center is bringing health and wellness awareness, education, and access to the residents of North Church Hill. This is done through our weekly classes, such as Taekwondo, Zumba, Yoga, and Hip Hop, which take place Monday-Thursday afternoons and evenings. Additionally, the Robinson Theater is bringing food skills workshops, hands-on demos, tactics, and education on the benefits of choosing healthier food options for themselves and their families. Along with these workshops, the Robinson Theater is hosting pop-up markets to provide local access to fresh produce (in-season), healthier options, and vendors who receive SNAP/EBT.

While these classes and workshops are offered at no charge to the residents of North Church Hill, there is a cost to the Robinson for every class held. This cost includes both instructor fees and facility costs. Instead of passing these fees along to the participants, we are inviting you to serve the community by giving towards our goal of $1,000, which will supplement the cost of fall and winter health and wellness classes at the Robinson.
