WHAT IS IT?
It’s The Senior Source’s 60th birthday this year! To celebrate this milestone, we are putting on The Diamond Dance-Off – a dance competition that shines the spotlight on older adults in Dallas. It’s a way for local residents to connect in a fun and safe virtual competition where participants submit home videos of themselves dancing, and the community votes for their favorite performers.
Here’s to uplifting the resilient, valuable and multifaceted seniors in our community! We hope The Diamond Dance-Off inspires unity, respect, joy and smiles. #ShineOn, dancers! We welcome all dancing talent levels.
The Senior Source’s 60th Birthday Celebration
The Diamond Dance-Off, will culminate on Tuesday, June 22 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, TX. The final four dancers in the competition will perform in front of a live audience and a panel of Dallas celebrity judges as they vie for the Crown Title and a $500 prize. Several other awards – such as the fan favorite, most creative dancer and the oldest dancer – will also be presented. All are invited to attend the FREE event to celebrate The Senior Source’s 60 years of service and the volunteers who have made 60 years possible. Chairs and light refreshments will be provided.
The Diamond Dance-Off is about so much more than just dancing ability. It’s about showing the value and joy seniors bring to our society. Everyone who enters is helping us show how amazing Dallas’ older adults are! Here are the awards up for grabs:
We collected songs from our volunteers, staff, clients and our board, and we’re proud to share our jammin’ song choices with the public! There’s just something about music that makes us want to get up and groove.
