Let’s Dance for International Dance Day!

It would be rude not to dance on International Dance Day right?

That’s what the residents at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead thought. They marked International Dance Day by celebrating a multitude of cultures and everyone tried their hand at learning a new dance routine.

The home welcomed the ‘Jugnu Bhangra Group’ who inspired everyone with Bhangra style dancing. The residents also got the chance to see a Dhol – a Punjabi drum - and had the opportunity to ask the musician for a quick lesson.

Not to be out done, the Marlborough Court Choir sang a couple of songs including ‘Oh Happy Days’, ‘Lean on Me’ and ‘Amazing Grace’.

Louise Hulme, Home Manager, said: “The day was a fantastic success. The residents enjoyed seeing all of the different styles of traditional dress and understanding the music and dances that are unique to each culture. It was a lovely day for everyone to enjoy and the feedback we received from residents and relatives was fantastic. I want to thank everyone who came and celebrated International Dance Day with us.
