The Sophisticated Ladies, a Senior Rockette-Style Dance Troupe, has been dancing through the Pandemic.  With all precautions taken, this senior group of ladies have been working diligently to stay together for the purpose of bringing the joy of dance to our community.  In March when the Pandemic hit, the Sophisticated Ladies had only four dancers with no place to rehearse or perform.  

But those determined “Faithful Four” dancers continued  to practice in a home garage and now have eight dancers and several performances scheduled for the Christmas season.

Recently, the dancers performed outdoors at the Encore Center in Southern Pines.  The Encore Center provides classes in music, dance, drama, and art for all ages. 

                At the Encore Center, the dancers performed “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B”  a military dance to honor our  veterans and “All That Jazz” that provided entertainment that even the teenagers clapped and had fun watching.
