Movers and shakers at Salford Waters Retirement Estate have found a unique way to keep active, one line dance at a time. Every Tuesday and Thursday up to 10 Salford Waters residents come together as part of a free line dancing group to socialise, learn new routines and make fitness fun again.
The group loves to combine classic songs and new school hits into their routines and enjoy moving to the music with fellow dance enthusiasts, helping keep them active in retirement.
Resident Dot Nimwegen coordinates the weekly practices and says the classes provide a great way to celebrate fun, friendship and fitness in retirement
“We have a great little community here at Salford Waters and are always looking for new ways to exercise and stay active. All our group members enjoy good music and socialising with one another, and line dancing provides the perfect excuse for both.”
The group is open to residents at all levels of ability and provides special help to those with accessibility and wheelchair needs. The class is just one of a range of other initiatives at the retirement living community on offer, including IT for Retirees and Wheelchair Yoga classes.
Set by the beautiful Moreton Bay, Salford Waters Retirement Estate combines independent living units and serviced apartments, allowing residents to live their retirement to the fullest.
The Estate includes a Clubhouse with indoor pool, library, craft room, and billiards room, and many activities including movie nights, morning teas and dancing, helping to keep residents feeling healthy, happy and connected.
