Put your best foot forward!
A blooming great tea party at Barty House, all in aid of Marie Curie took place on Friday 23rd June.
The lounge room was festooned with vintage bunting, lanterns and 40’s memorabilia for Barty’s tea dance.
Residents watched in awe, as talented ballroom dancers Craig and Hannah, from Warmlake Dance Academy, waltzed and tangoed around the room. Their ballroom dancing demonstration showcased some familiar dances and some not so familiar.
Both Craig and Hannah took residents through the history and style of each dance as they went. Many residents said, “It took me back!” Toes were certainly tapping to catchy tea dance music from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, as well as familiar 50’s dance tunes.
To complete a wonderful afternoon, cream tea was served in the dining room, while residents talked amongst themselves reminiscing of their own dance hall days!
