    Design-wise I think your poster is cool, but kinda looks like an ad for thriller or a horror movie. Maybe you could think through what you want to project and generally avoid the look of smeared blood. I know you didn't ask for advice but this struck me as quite "not-communicating-the right-message" and I could not NOT say something. Then again it's quite fun and might have been what you were going for. "Beware!!! The Elder-Bellies is back!"

    Edit: soo... the picture has changed so my post doesn't really apply anymore, just for your information.

    Me neither...nor will I ever ever discriminate on grounds of age.
    STOP you old biddies can't come to my class, get thee hence to "elder-bellies"
    And pointless anyway .I know seventy somethings who are fitter and better dancers than youngsters.
    A society should contain all its' elements.
    There is outcry on this forum if anyone suggests that folks are excluded on grounds of gender or sexuality or heaven forfend.... race but ageism..oh that's OK
    Sorry it really angers me that because I am 60, I have to be catered for seperately .
    If you are concerned about health issues then you discuss it with the individual.
    Classes for older men and women can come about naturally by time of day, venue or demand but but a label like that is divisive and patronising

    and I agree seperately withGisela's assessment

    I was asked to create this class, a group of ladies approached me, not the other way around. In fact I have noticed that these ladies find a freedom from a "mixed" age group to voice there wants in the class without feeling as if they are holding back the class. I have had nothing but positive feedback from these mature students. They have created there own little group and they have made friends and socialise as a group. The class is at a slower pace, but not due to age, but because they want to learn each more more completely before moving onto the next, as they say we are not in a hurry to learn everything, were here for the fun!
