The Sophisticated Ladies Senior Dance Troupe celebrated the 4th of July holiday with a patriotic performance at McLendon Hills outdoor pavilion. They observed safe procedures with masks, sanitizers, and at least 6 feet of space for social distancing. The dancers even set up a Safe Table to provide masks, sanitizers, small gifts, and information.
Families arrived in their golf carts with pets and children. The Announcer, Cynthia Walden-Brown, told the story of the Sophisticated Ladies which was started in Pinehurst thirty years ago by a retired NY City Rockette. Cynthia also recognized military veterans and encouraged audience participation.
The five Rockette-style dancers all live in the West End area and performed Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Hello Dolly, Singing in the Rain, and Oh What A Feeling from Flashdance.
