SWINGING and swaying the morning away was the perfect way to celebrate a local seniors dancing group’s first anniversary.

Organised through the Seniors Recreation Council, local seniors can attend dancing classes with teachers and sisters Ansje Renshaw and Elly Burnham.

They are the principals of Swing & Sway Dancing Group, which holds classes for over 45s in Port Kennedy, Pinjarra and Harvey.

“We teach people all the classics and the steps involved,” Renshaw said.

“We also have a group of core dancers who do shows.

“It is to show what seniors can do, and they’re not too shabby either.”

Former Seniors Recreation Council president Lesley Robson was presented with flowers for her efforts to bring the dance classes to Rockingham and Kwinana Seniors.

Swing & Sway classes are held every Tuesday at the Port Kennedy Community Centre. Call 9592 7651.
