As supper neared its conclusion, dessert came around. This dessert, however, was a bit unique. Alongside the plate, a small card announced a spectacular treat!

The excitement grew as each resident read their personal invitation to the Swing Dance party. Smiles grew wider as they shared with one another their own experience of dancing. Then he came out, our king of swing, Mr. Singleton.

With keyboard at hand and a sweeping smile, his fingers danced across the keys. Before you knew it, staff and residents were on their feet. Walkers were set aside and youth returned as they moved to the rhythm of great music.

Swinging couples could be seen throughout the dinning room. Even those who remained seated could not help but move their feet to the beat. What a treat!
