Burchell High School Dancers
Velma Jean jives!
On a recent Wednesday afternoon several residents came to the Garden Café because they heard what sounded like a large man laughing.
As they peeked their heads around the corner what they saw were dancers from Burchell High School’s three dance classes getting ready for a performance.
As everyone took their seats, the residents were treated to 2 hours of slapstick, tap, jazz, Broadway numbers, a foxtrot, a two-step and even some jive! All 25 dancers were dressed as elves, and Santa sat with the residents to watch the show.
The highlight of the show came afterwards, when each dancer came and greeted Primrose residents with hugs and smiles and candy canes!
During the holiday season it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, but that wonderful Wednesday we were all reminded that it’s the little things, like a song or a hug, that show us the true meaning of the holiday spirit. Thank you so much to the Burchell High School Dancers for entertaining us on a wintery December afternoon!
