Least that we expect, the “Lolas and Lolos” were the ones very excited to participate in our Zumba program. We offered them that we can help them in their practices and they proposed that we practice every day in the afternoon so that they will memorize their steps during the final performance.
The group was divided into 2. Group 1 named their group as “The TIGUWANGGETS” meaning “TIGULANG na BAGETS” while the other group are the “SEXY SENIORS” because it was an all-girl group. We practiced every day, like literally every single day. I don’t know where they get their enthusiasm and willingness to practice but it was fun. They never run out of energy to dance and show that age doesn’t stop them from enjoying and dancing.
Then came the final day, September 23, 2017. Everybody was busy preparing their costumes. I can see the excitement on their faces the happiness in their smiles. They dance their heart out to the beat of “Sabay- sabay tayo” and “Mambo No. 5” during the final performance, they were enjoying, having fun and of course very competitive which made the crowd laugh and giggle with their performance. It was an AWESOME experience working with the senior citizens. Until next time! Ciao!
