Optimal Rhythms Community Offerings - Winter 2022
Opening Doors to Opportunity
Are you ready to work on skills while having fun with friends new and old? Are you looking for a social community that embraces you as you are and encourages you, your CRP, and your chosen mode of communication?
Minds and Motor Club
Bring your best attitude because we are going to be moving! Find a comfortable space and a helpful assistant. We will be moving our bodies in this club. Working through simple, purposeful movements as well as passive and assisted movements.
You’ll learn about the body, anatomy and physiology terms, movements to work through any retained primitive reflexes, proprioceptive and rhythmic work as well.
All of that movement and you can still chat and get to know folks who also spell/type to communicate!

Fabulous Film Club
This club is for individuals who want to expand their cinematic viewing options and hold discussions related to films they choose to watch as a club. Members will vote on a film, watch the selected film on their own, then attend club meetings to discuss the film together. The conversations are real and deep so bring your introspective and analytic mind as we plumb psychology and meaning, while also learning about writing techniques and story design.
The discussion about The Princess Bride focused on “The Hero’s Journey,” a writing device for characters. The discussion on Star Wars: A New Hope focused on the score and its influences. The discussion on Inside Out focused on the depth of meaning found in respecting your own experiences and emotions.
Bring your own thoughts and experiences to this group of open-minded and engaging people as we watch and explore films! Our first 2023 film club meeting will discuss The Iron Giant.
Each group is 1-hour long, meeting at 3pm Central Standard Time on 6 consecutive Thursdays.

Mindful Music Club
This club will analyze music and songs suggested by club members, evaluate what makes a good song “good,” learn about music theory, and compose music together.
We will go over the basics of written music, basics of harmony and melody, and technology and choice boards options to create with. We then compose and play back music we make together. It’ll be a club for exploring new music, having conversations about why certain music is impactful and interesting.
You don’t need to have previous musical experience, just bring your curiosity and we’ll have a great time!
