Community Center

The Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s Community Center offers full-time Town residents, snowbirds and Broward County residents a variety of fun and informative programs and classes throughout the year. Armilio Bien-Aime, the center’s director for 19 years, often sees the value of the center’s programs and his efforts in the faces of the people who participate.

"People seem to be happier as they leave here," Armilio said. "This is a place where you can come to have some fun, learn new skills, and make friends. We have lots of great activities and programs."

Funded by the Town and a grant from Broward County, the center is located in Jarvis Hall, 4505 N. Ocean Drive. The center offers classes about computers, smartphones, tablets, acting, Spanish, Italian, French, English as a Second Language, yoga, bridge, ping pong, Tai Chi, ballroom dancing, arts and crafts, watercolors, interior decorating, drawing, word processing, Facebook, photography, computer virus protection software and video editing. Sea Shorts is the center’s semi-annual theater production.

Classes are free

Classes are free to Town residents and snowbirds who reside here part-time, and folks age 60 or older. Retired doctors, lawyers, engineers and teachers often volunteer to teach or make presentations about trips or life experiences.
