A little bit about Maxine

“I retired 3 years ago from 37 years in the Dental Field. This came after a personal tragedy in my life. A year later I decided to rekindle my passion for dance and it became an important part of my healing process. The feeling you get from dance is different from anything you will ever encounter. When you step onto the dance floor you forget the outside world anything you have troubling you will melt away after the first step.

When I became Director in charge of Instructional Programs for Kennedy Seniors Recreation Centre, I noticed that we had no dance programs. So thinking of the joy and other benefits I get from dance, I thought, why not bring dance to Kennedy. We started the Level 1 and 2 classes and they proved very successful. To provide additional skills and dances, we added the Thursday evening Level 3 program and it too is proving to be popular. I hope to see you on the floor!”
