Dance for Dignity Day a huge success

16 October 2020

Our residents enjoying the dance session

Residents at our Holy Cross nursing home in Sunderland had an absolute ball when they joined in with Dance for Dignity Day.

Tuned in to a virtual seated dance class with London's famous Pineapple Dance Studios, age was no barrier to enjoying the fun, feel-good session alongside our staff. In fact, their moves were the envy of our home's activities co-ordinator, Vicky.

“Whether they were in a wheelchair or sitting in a chair,” said Vicky, “they certainly out-danced me!”

Along with the fun, the virtual dance session helped with mobility and provided a sense of achievement, too, with each resident receiving a much-deserved certificate of participation.

“This has been great for my shoulders,” said resident, Canon Spence. “They're moving great!” And fellow resident Jeanne added, “Just because I'm in a wheelchair, doesn't mean I can't enjoy new things.”

We couldn't agree more and we'll be organising more seated dance sessions soon.
