It's party time! Our 40's inspired Dance4th December 2019 | 3 min read
Our residents at Opal Cardinal Freeman in Ashfield, Sydney love a party! They decided to invite fellow residents from four other Opal care homes to join in the fun in their 40’s themed dance. Watch the video below. Residents and team members from Windward Manor, Canterbury, Annandale, and Stanmore came by bus for the occasion which brought our communities together for an afternoon of dancing.
The beauty of music and dance is that memories of the lyrics and melody of a song often prevail when our other memories fail. The enjoyment of music can enable a wonderful sense of wellbeing and happiness and this was truly felt by us all as we danced away the afternoon.
It was a wonderful occasion which bought both young and old together and it was a joy to see the fun shared by all.
