About Age Friendly South Portland: Age Friendly South Portland is an AARP-certified age-friendly community dedicated to building a city in which people of all ages can thrive.

About Michael Elliott: Michael Elliott learned Cheng Man-Ch’ing’s short form from a traveling mime in 1970, and has been expanding the vitality of its practice without interruption ever since. Teachers along the path have been Robert W.Smith (Chinese Boxing, Masters & Methods), Laddie Sacharko (Star Farm, CT), Ramel Rones, and Stephen Bennett (Slow Dance School, CT). Chicago and the new millennium brought in the opportunity to study Yang Classical long form with Peter & Hau Kum Kneip, and in 2011 the Star Farm certification in 8 posture “T’ai Chi for Better Balance” was brought to the Portland YMCA by Mr. Elliott. He now teaches at Bay Studio & A Space for Grace in Portland, Ocean View Retirement in Falmouth, Studio Fit in Westbrook, and Basics Fitness in South Portland; classes are also forming at the Martin Center in Biddeford. In addition to 40 years of T’ai Chi practice, he has a Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) from National Louis University.
