You never forget how to dance

The sessions always end with a Conga!

Over the last two years, Gerringong Rotary’s Dance Away Dementia has become a popular program for participants and carers alike.

“We now have well over 50 participants (including carers) from Blue Haven Care, Uniting Mayflower Gerringong and Shell Cove Warrigal Care, as well as local residents who live independently,” says Rotary’s Crista Wood.

Its success means the organisers are after more volunteers to help get everyone onto the dancefloor.

“There is no special dancing ability required as our Dance Teacher Phil Lowder provides basic dance steps at each session.

“It’s great fun.”

The dances are generally held on Friday afternoon, starting at 2pm and finishing at 3.30pm, after a well deserved afternoon tea.

The next five week session will start in late August.
