While residents will enjoy a Scottish dance show at the Sidcup Nursing and Residential Centre on Monday from 2pm.
Dancing stars, Anton Du Beke and Ann Widdecombe from BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing were joined at the launch event last week by residents from Elmstead Residential Home in Chislehurst.
Tracey Cheeseman, Abbotsleigh Mews’ home manager, said: “We’re really looking forward to putting on our dancing shoes and sewing on our sequins.
“Our Shall We Dance event is a great opportunity to invite members of the local community into our home to take part in fun activities with our residents, staff and relatives.”
Shall We Dance is part of Bupa’s 2011 Global Challenge, involving thousands of residents, staff, relatives and communities across the world.
