Aging and slowing down aren't the same thing - especially to those who participated in this dance contest March 27, 2007.
Based on the ABC hit show, Dancing with the Stars, the folks at Menorah Park put on their own show, aptly named Dancing with the Menorah Park Adult Day Center Stars!
ClevelandSeniors.com joined Menorah Park staff members to serve as judges of this contest. There were categories ranging from "The Twist" to "Dancing Wheels" (for wheelchair dancing) to "The Chicken Dance" and even "Dancing Dudes" (for men) and "Dancing Divas" for the ladies!
The first thing you notice when you enter the Day Center facility is the excitement and energy. Men and women both were limbering up and doing some last minute practice moves getting ready for the big contest.
The 50's rock and roll theme that decorated the room added to the festive mood. 20-25 people were on the dance floor for every number and many more swayed along in their seats.
