Dancing through the Decades with AARP
ðŸ•ºðŸ’«DANCING THROUGH THE DECADESðŸ’«ðŸ’ƒ
Through the ages, dance is what makes our spirits brighter, our brains healthier, our hearts happier and our bodies feel alive. Between all cultures, all histories and all human beings, it remains the one common denominator that connects us allâ€¦ ðŸ’ƒ
So to remind us of this magic language we all share, weâ€™re teaming up with our friends atÂ AARPÂ for aÂ 2 hour livestream dance adventure through the decades on Saturday, July 18th.
In support of theÂ new report by AARP and The Global Council on Brain Health, thisÂ FREE experience is a gift for our community.Â ðŸ§ ðŸ™ And from the Loco-Motions of the â€˜60s, The Funky Chickens ðŸ¥ of the â€˜70s and The Moonwalks of the â€˜80s, youâ€™re invited to step into our virtual world and celebrate life with this special, immersive journey through time. ðŸŽ‰
Together, weâ€™ll begin atÂ 11AM ETÂ with anÂ all levels, all ages dance classÂ led byÂ LEGENDARYÂ choreographer and 3-time Emmy Award Winner âœ¨Â Debbie Allen. âœ¨ With thousands of friends around the globe,Â weâ€™ll learn dance steps from each of the decades, moving our feet to The Twist, bumpinâ€™ our hips to the line dances of the â€˜70s and raising our arms to do The Sprinkler. ðŸ’¦
Then,Â dressed-up in the fashions of our favorite eraÂ (Go Go Boots? ðŸ‘¢ 3 piece suits? ðŸ•º Parachute pants and big hair? ðŸ¤), weâ€™ll let our bodies move forÂ an hour long dance partyÂ to theÂ musical anthems of each decade.Â Expect celebrity guests, special surprises and tons of mischief through our dance cams (where weâ€™ll be able to see each other). ðŸ“¹ðŸ¤« And um, we are not making this up,Â not only are theÂ Village PeopleÂ leading us through their iconic dance jam YMCA, butÂ Queen of Disco and Grammy-winner singer of “I Will Survive”Â Gloria GaynorÂ will be singing with us. ðŸ¤¯ðŸ™Œ
Again, this experience is totally freeâ€”but don’t forget to RSVP to receive your Zoom link on event day.Â Think of it as a sweet moment of respite, a way to connect to the world together at home and fill our tanks back up with joy. â˜€ï¸ Because rememberâ€”from kiddos to master citizens 50 and wiser, dance is for everybody, and every body. All we need to do is close our eyes and follow the beat. ðŸ’—
See you on the virtual dancefloor.
