Dancer’s grace Beverley Parklands

On Saturday 16th December we held our craft fair at Beverley Parklands and had a local dance group, Miss Rachael’s School of Dance, come to perform. The group, which is made up of dancers aged between 6 and 15, performed a range of dances from Ballet to Modern Dance Jazz.

Rachael Melins, who trains the youngsters said “I am very pleased with how the day went. We were asked by Maralee Charles, the Event’s Organiser at the home if we could provide some entertainment at their Christmas Fayre. The residents at the home clearly enjoyed the event and it was a great experience for the dancers to showcase their talent in front of a live audience.”

Maz, our events coordinator said “Some of our residents have on set and varying degrees of dementia so communication is limited. I witnessed residents visibly tapping feet, smiling and clapping, each and every one of them engaged and stimulated. I cannot even begin to express how grateful and happy we all were, residents haven’t stopped talking about it.  One of our residents was in younger days a ballet dancer and had tears of joy watching them.”
