A Dazzling Dance Display At The Manor

21st January 2024

Residents at The Manor Care Home love to be entertained, so a visit from 19 talented dancers from Sarah Anne Ballingall’s Zayna Dance Academy on Sunday 21st January was a real treat.

The group performed a range of beautifully presented solo and ensemble dances which showcased their impressive skills and a genuine joy for dance - evident in even the tiniest performers!

Dance Group Entertains at Our Care Home in Edinburgh

Our residents were hugely impressed by the academy dancers’ ability and professionalism, which the school’s principal, Sarah Anne Ballingall, confirmed was the result of hard work and meticulous rehearsal. These young dancers regularly take part in competitions so being under the spotlight comes naturally, although the chance to shine in a non-competitive setting is good experience too.

“Our dancers love performing, so it was really fun for them to just enjoy themselves and show off their talents”, Sarah explained.

The dancers' confidence was impressive throughout the show and the residents especially loved the stunning costumes, which added a dash of ‘showbiz’ glamour!

After the show, as a token of appreciation, each child was presented with a small gift from some of the residents – a thoughtful touch and a heartwarming gesture at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable event.

Dates in the Diary for 2024

The dancers’ performance was so well received that plans are already being made for a return to The Manor later this year.

Meanwhile, the care home team have been invited to attend the dance academy's Christmas show dress rehearsal in December – a wonderful opportunity to further develop the relationship between the home and the local community.

The event gave residents the chance to enjoy a fabulous visual and musical performance – a real highlight for January. More than just a show, the experience also helped to create a bond between the generations and demonstrated how artistic expression and creativity can connect performers with their audience, bringing joy to both.
