Learning new skills at Guthrie!

Recently we have been trying to learn some new skills at Guthrie House Care Home.

One of our Magic Moments team, Sheila, many moons ago used to belly dance and offered to teach us how to do it!

Our residents all adorned hip scarves, and our residents gave a performance after our coaching from Shelia on how to do a shimmy. The residents loved getting dressed up and participating in the dancing there were laughs and smiles all round.

There are always ‘stars’ of the class and residents, Carmelina and Margaret, picked up the skills very well and showed the others how it’s done! We danced to Shakira, Hips Don’t Lie and a traditional belly dancing tune.

Our residents have requested to continue with this activity as it’s great exercise, and even more importantly… great fun! A lovely time was had by all!

Guthrie Care Home is located in Edinburgh and provides Nursing Care and Nursing Dementia Care.
