Dancing in the New Year

The Arc of Delaware held its first dances of the new year on January 20th, 2023. In addition to the monthly Mid-Del dance in Dover, we were able to host a parallel dance in New Castle–same date and time, different venue and DJ.

In Dover, more than 200 friends were happy to see each other again and to welcome some new faces.

It was a special night for DJ Lori Jones as the crowd celebrated her talents and contributions on National Disc Jockey Day with flowers. They also eagerly followed her lead on learning the latest line dance challenge.

The Mid-Del committee volunteers introduced a new food choice called “Chili Frito Pie” at the dance, and the crowd enthusiastically “ate it up.”

In addition to dancing and games, birthday guests were treated to a chorus of Happy Birthday from the attendees.

We expect to continue offering monthly dances in both Dover and New Castle throughout the year, although they may sometimes be on different dates–so watch your email and this space for updates.
