Damant Lodge dance classes
After a musical jam session to Swedish pop group, ABBA, in August, Damant lodge residents got their feet tapping with dancing lessons from Port Alfred’s Scottish Country Dance group on Wednesday, September 7.
From the wide variety of country dances, the group chose two jigs and one strathspey to focus on for their dancing routines. “The residents enjoyed the morning clapping to the music and tapping their feet,” entertainment organiser, Margaret Barnard, said.
The dancing group helps keep the elderly physically active and in shape with the dancing lessons.
The dancing group members also encouraged the residents to join in on a very simple dance routine. Dawn Van Dyk, a resident of Damant Lodge, thanked the dancers for coming to entertain and bringing smiles to all their faces.
