Henderson, KY 7/22/21– Henderson Senior Center, also known as The Gathering Place, is proud to announce that Saturday night dances will be returning on August 14th.
“We have been waiting to bring back the dances until we felt comfortable with the opening of the daily operations of the senior center, and we are there, so we can’t wait for people to come back with their dancing shoes!”Bill Rhodes, Henderson Senior Center Director
Dances will start back in August, but there are some changes to be aware of before attending. The first dance will be on Saturday, August 14th with one of the favorite performers amongst their attendees, Kelly Turley. After Turley, they plan to welcome back the Southern Bullets on Saturday, August 28th. The doors will open at 5 p.m. and dancing starts at 6 p.m.
Due to the rise in prices over the last year for several materials, like other businesses, the senior center has had to implement extensive cleaning and sanitizing procedures to keep the guests and members safe. The dance fee has been increased to $9 per person to ensure that the dances can be sustained and safety remains a top priority for all.
As part of the fee, The Gathering Place will provide coffee, tea, water and fresh hot popcorn, however attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks and nonalcoholic beverages of choice.
Organizers are looking forward to the dances returning and seeing the dancers enjoy their favorite line dance, two step or electric boogie again! If you should have any questions, you are asked to call the senior center at (270) 827-2948.
