The Senior Dance

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Today my hubby and I enjoyed another senior dance. The city recreation department lets the group use the facility for free and the singer/musician/DJ works for tips. It's a lot of fun. They always have good coffee that I enjoy and cookies that I ignore. Today I took my camera:

Guess I enjoyed that twist so much I just had to close my eyes to take it all in!

Hubby and I slow dancing in front of the "band".

They are fixing the floor in our usual location, but this room has extra memories for hubby and me. We met there in 1979 at a dance.

Here's my good friend, Bertie, with her boyfriend, Vince. We met at the YMCA in Zumba class but became fast friends during the Senior Games. She won lots and lots of dance medals! It is great to have fit friends who inspire you to try new things. I can now do the Electric Slide and the Cuba Shuffle and am working on Boot Scootin' Boogie and the Good Times line dances.

I went to the Y this afternoon and enjoyed the great A/C for my 3.75 mile run-walk-run. Tonight I'm looking forward to eating supper with our small but dedicated local SparkTeam!!

    Sounds like a wonderful day and great to bring back some memories of how and where you met. I guess I need to see if something like that is offered here as it sounds like a lot of fun and I need to get DH moving more!

    WOW! You are definitely SPARKED! You are so bubbly and I can see why. How fun to commingle new friends with previous friends by your happy smile and obvious enjoyment of the dancing. Good for YOU!

Keep up the great workout. I believe that the thing I miss the most since I put on weight, is dancing.

It give me incentive. emoticon emoticon emoticon
