Sanctuary Care residents in Old Basing enjoyed a taste of Spain last week with flamenco moves galore and tasty cuisine.
The team and residents at Basingfield Court Residential Care Home in Huish Lane threw open their doors for a Spanish party, where local dancing group, Flamenca Magica, brought the sensational Spanish rhythms alive in the heart of Old Basing.
Live music and fancy footwork
The trained dancers, who were dressed in traditional attire, performed toe-tapping routines to live guitar music entertainment, before giving their audience the chance to learn a few flamenco steps of their own.
Victor Ballpit, resident, said: “I’ve never seen dancing quite like it before in my life – the footwork was amazing!”
Jeanette Paris commented: “It was a nice alternative to traditional dancing – it made for a lovely evening with my friends and family.”
Fellow resident, Beryl Streether, added: “The guitar playing was wonderful.”
Interesting dance moves with new friends!
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Julia Pattenden said: “Our residents really enjoy when performing arts entertainers come into the home, especially dancers – they love all the fancy footsteps and it was a lot of fun to watch them teach the interesting dance moves to new friends.”
