Members can also discover the beauty and healing power of music through music classes including piano, voice, and music therapy. 

There are also special dance classes like Chair Dancing by Danny Vinculado, which gives opportunities for the elderly in wheels or walkers, or those with hip or lower leg injury to be energized. Pound Fitness, under the instruction of Pound Pro Neru Salas, is an extension of Chair Dancing and the first hybrid class catering to both able clients and PWDs. Seniors dance to the beat, hitting the drumsticks, exercising both body and musicality. 

Zumba Gold classes under Zin Emily Osorio, on the other hand, provide lower intensity workouts appropriate for active seniors; while Dekada, under former member of Manoeuvres and Hotlegs, Mark Soler Cruz, highlights popular dance craze of yesterday and today.

Instructor Jose Antonio Anonas leads the Sunshine Place’s Tai Chi Yang Style (24 movements) for beginners.
