- A Spontaneous Invitation Changed My Outlook on Life
It was a spontaneous invitation from my mother to attend their senior holiday dance and party. I was visiting from out of state and obliged her request, but I wondered how much fun it would really be with everyone so advanced in years.
- Amazing Synchronized Dancing by Deaf Performers
I can’t imagine how much time these people spend rehearsing. This dance is called the Thousand-Hand Guanyin. All 21 of the dancers are completely deaf.
Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring. Its first major international debut was at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics in Athens.
- Dance Recitals
When was the last time you attended a dance recital? Aren’t they fun? The granddaughters had one this weekend, and, of course, Grandma and Grandpa were more than happy to go.
- Octogenarian Salsa Dancer
If you don’t think you can dance into your 80s—or if you can and would like to see some impressive moves—get a load of this grandma dancing the salsa.
Don’t be fooled by the beginning. As for more information about this 80-something or her partner, an Internet search provided no clues. Just sit back and enjoy!
