Galsworthy go Turkish

Residents at Galsworthy House nursing home in Kingston upon Thames welcomed back the lovely Maria Louisa (belly dancer) and her husband who interact with all residents.

We wanted to make a full day of it from the decoration, to entertainment and the food.

Maria danced with many residents as they clapped and tapped along to the beat of Turkish music. She is a great dancer and included a lot of the belly dancing traditions in her dance such as hip lifts, hip rocks and hip twists along with other parts of the body. There were lots of shimmies which some of the residents had a go at from their chairs.

One of our residents grandchildren were very happy playing the bongos that were bought along!

To finish the day we had a lovely Turkish supper of onion soup, chicken and salad in pitta bread, followed by rum baba and of course a lovely mint tea. A delightful late afternoon was had by all and we look forward to Maria’s return next year.
