Young Grantham dancers provide Christmas cheer at five care homes
A group of youngsters from the Grantham School of Dancing brought warmth to a chilly Sunday last weekend by showcasing their talent to town centre shoppers and care home residents.
Despite high winds and difficult weather conditions, more than 20 girls aged from three to 14 performed a variety of Christmas themed dances, in front of the Guildhall Arts Centre, with huge smiles and lots of confidence, as part of the town’s Christmas festivities.
They went on to sing festive tunes with accomplished harmonies and solos, and also showed off their musical abilities with a range of performances.
Wanting to give something back to the community, the dancers who perform at numerous shows throughout the year, were proudly escorted by dance school teachers and parents to spread some Christmas spirit by visiting five care homes in the town – Birchwood, Gregory House, Kings Court, Belvoir House and Castlegate - to share their magic with the elderly residents.
One of the mums, Mrs Vic Rossington, said: “ It was a long, tiring but very rewarding day for the girls.
“ The school wanted to focus on giving something back to the community at Christmas and the girls were out from 10am to 6pm, giving 40-minute performances before moving on to the next location.
“It was great at the care homes, everyone joined in singing along and it really made their day.”
