At Montereau, we’re fortunate to have so many interesting people among our residents, including Georgia Snoke, a retired ballet dancer who definitely knows her way around a dance floor.

“I am extremely impressed by the quality of the teachers and the variety they do,” she said of Montereau’s fitness classes. “There are many classes that would fit what you want to do, and best of all, no one is looking at you and saying you can’t do that. Everyone is encouraging and cheers you on. The friendly camaraderie here impresses me.”
