Clare Harris, Gwynedd Council DementiaGo and Aqua Instructor, joined Elvis impersonator Wynne Roberts as she instructed the group in their exercises in the water.
Wynne agreed to come along to the class to help raise funds for DementiaGo, the physical activity class for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
A coffee morning and raffle was held for the regulars before they started the class.
Clare said: “It was a fantastic turnout, with more than 30 of our regulars taking part and having a thoroughly good time exercising and singing along with Elvis.
“The DementiaGo team would like to thank everyone involved for their fantastic effort.”
A total of £270 was raised, which will go towards special events and activities for people living with dementia to enhance their lives and help them live well with the disease.
Cllr Craig ab Iago, Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member who leads on leisure, said: “We fully support innovative events like this, where people come together to exercise and raise awareness about dementia.
“The people who attend on a regular basis also enjoy the social aspect and have become firm friends. Exercise is one of the risk factors which can help reduce the risk of dementia.”
