Summer Dance at Assisted Living Houston Community
If you've been reading the Treemont Blog, you know that the residents enjoy life and each other and take every opportunity to socialize. The Summer Dance was no exception. Read the story about the Summer Dance in the Houston Press. A superb time was had by all with live music by Kovanda's Czech Band. .The band practices at Treemont on Wednesday evenings so it was a delight to get a full performance and give residents the opportunity to use their relatively new dance floor in the auditorium.
By the end of the night, there was a circle of seniors on the dance floor. Some are doing moves reminiscent of the "Single Ladies" dance to a polka song. There's a lot of smiling and laughing happening. Resident Dorsie Miller was a singer in Detroit in her day and performed with Billy Williams. These stories are also relayed in the Houston Press story. When the band took a request — the “Too Fat Polka” — no one in the room whined about how politically incorrect the song might seem. The requester stood up from her motorized scooter and started singing robustly, “I don’t want her, you can have her, she’s too fat for me,…”
As I write this story, Treemont just finished its Sock Hop. See Sock Hop photos on Facebook. While you are there, please 'Like' Treemont so you can keep current on our activities. We'll be posting photos soon from the Summer Dance.
