Music lifts the soul, dancing brings happiness, familiar tunes bring back memories.
This Thursday as every Thursday since Parklands opened, we received the visit of Simon our Ballroom dancer, who every week brings joy and smiles to all our faces. His great charisma enables the residents and the staff to explore lost memories through the dancing and the music that is played during the afternoon.
All our residents wait eagerly for the music to begin and get ready to start dancing with Simon, with other residents or with some staff members. We usually burst into song when a familiar tune comes.
Waltz, rumba, foxtrot, cha cha cha and even tango are some of the rhythms that we listen and dance to, can’t wait for the next one.
