Certified InterPlay Leader
Amos Alan Lans likes to tell folks, “I became a dancer in my 50’s, thanks to InterPlay!” Amos is one of the three co-leaders of the Thursday evening men’s drop-in class. He loves introducing InterPlay to groups of men, especially gay men, especially older gay men who are learning new ways of enjoying being in their ageing bodies as well as playful ways of connecting with other guys. Letting stories emerge from movement is one of Amos’ favorite InterPlay activities. For 20+ years, Amos set up and taught in public school gardening programs. He now teaches the joys of composting, gardening, and healthy eating to at-risk urban youth in North Oakland’s Dover Street Edible Park, near his home on 61st Street.
