The team at a Sanctuary Care home in Worcester were in the pink when they toe tapped their way through a dance routine for a special video.
Yesterday (Thursday 23 April) ladies at Regent Residential Care Home in School Road, St John’s, donned blushing shades when they were filmed for a video which will be played at Strictly Worcestershire 2015, which takes place on Thursday 21 May.
The video incorporated footage of the dance novices performing a fusion of different styles, including Bollywood, contemporary and even steps from the Cha-cha-cha.
It also features staff from Sanctuary’s Worcester office performing routines choreographed especially for the occasion, as well as the team at Sanctuary Care’s Hastings Residential Care Home in Malvern, who like the team at Regent adapted elements of the choreographed routine.
The video has been made to show at Strictly Worcestershire 2015, which takes place at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich.
The event is being supported by Sanctuary Care’s parent company Sanctuary Group and is raising funds for the Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign and Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer.
Regent’s deputy manager Jill Pearce said: “We had so much fun filming the video and our residents had an absolute ball watching us practice our routine.
“I don’t think there is much chance of us auditioning for a dance contest any time soon but it was a wonderful experience and made our residents beam from ear to ear!”
The contestants for Strictly Worcestershire 2015 are members of Worcestershire’s charitable and corporate societies and are dance novices, who will be dressed in sequinned finery for the event, where they will go head-to-head before a panel of judges at a black tie dinner dance.
The Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign aims to raise £1.8 million to fund the establishment of a new, dedicated Breast Unit at Worcestershire Royal Hospital for use by women and men across the county.
Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer was established in 2000 and has raised over £1 million for the Cancer Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
