Get dancing, get healthy

The perfect solution for the health of our school children would be to start every day with Ukrainian dancing.

Dear editor,

The perfect solution for the health of our school children would be to start every day with Ukrainian dancing.

This week we attended the most entertaining performance of the Calmar Zirka Dancers at Lifestyle Options in Leduc.  It is impossible to imagine any dancers that could be more interesting, colourful, lively, graceful and athletic.  The costumes were outstanding, bright and vivid colours, the whites so white, and the intermingled shades a cross-stitch of patterns and designs.

Each person glowing with happiness brought smiles and excitement to the residents as they leaned forward so not to miss a single step.

The steady, organized entertainment demonstrated the imagination and hard work involved in this group by dedicated teachers and dancers, not forgetting the loving atmosphere created by the excited family supporters. This proved to be a fascinating evening of pure enjoyment.
