Moving to the beat
MORE?THAN 4 000 people crammed into Independence Square last night with the intention of sweating, and that is just what they did while participating in the National Task Force’s line dancing event.
Moving to all genres of music, but especially calypso, the dancers, including Mara Thompson, MP, widow of late Prime Minister David Thompson, showed great zeal in moving with unbridled vigour from the 5:30 start until way after seven.
Ranging from the young to the old, they displayed keen and at times daring moves, much to the enjoyment of the thousands who ringed the inner section of the square.
Most of the participants ignored the fact that it was supposed to be line dancing and just did their own thing in fragmented groups as the MC tried to fashion the lines. Even so, there was no doubt that everyone had a grand time.
The smiles and the drenched outfits loudly proclaimed an evening of healthy activity well spent.
