Arcare Peregian Springs been entertained by the ‘Tap Katz’ tap dancers.
There was an array of with jazz music and old-time songs from the client’s era.
The dancers are not only talented in dancing, but they also make their own costumes.
They put on a show and performed several dancing acts.
David sang many old-time and classical songs.
To many, music is inspirational, brings about enjoyment and encourages socialisation.
The clients are joined David in singing out loud, while the ladies got changed into their costumes for the next act.
They did a lot of tapping with the feet as they performed for the clients.
Having entertainment of their era once again truly gave them a sense of continuity as it evoked many memories.
