Our Arcare North Lakes aged care residence was filled with music and dance when Chinese dancers came to put on a special, traditional performance for us.
The dancers wore beautifully coloured costumes and as they danced gracefully, their flowy costumes also floated along with every gentle movement.
Throughout the one-hour performance, their dancing styles changed and they also did a total of eight costume changes!
One of the eye-catching and unique features of their performance was the doll head costume that they wore.
The clients thought the doll heads were adorable because they looked like little babies with big eyes and pink cheeks.
“I really enjoyed that performance! It was something different I had never seen before,” a client commented.
Being able to experience and enjoy musical traditions from other cultures is special to the clients at Arcare North Lakes.
From country music and golden oldies to traditional Chinese music, you’d think they’ve seen and heard them all!
But the clients at Arcare North Lakes always look forward to next week’s musical surprise.
To them, enjoying good music is just a part of their everyday lives.
And here at Arcare North Lakes, we do our best to offer a wide variety of musical concerts and performances from different groups.
Most importantly, the clients always leave the concerts feeling refreshed and happy with a skip in the step!
