Going into it, I honestly did not know what to expect at one of these functions but I had a great time and was made to feel very welcome among this group of dancers. That's the best part (aside from the dancing) about the dance community- they've never met a stranger!
Here are some of the pictures I took of the dancers! There was a live band and the patients were lining the lawn in large numbers. I wish I had taken some shots of the faces on the patients watching! They were priceless..
I really thought it was sweet that the nurses were going around and interacting with the patients holding their hands or trying to get them to dance a little- even if they were in wheelchairs the nurse would dance around the chair! So precious!
This was a truly rewarding experience being able to bring joy to those people simply by doing something that brings me great joy! I can't wait to do it again next year.
Of course, this post would not be complete if I didn't show off my new used shoes in which I blissfully danced away the night! No really, I danced from 7pm until 1am.. Pass the advil please!
