Dancers’ show boosts Scouts

Life was a cabaret for a group of mature burlesque dancers from the Bognor Regis area.


The six members of The Golden Girls performed a fun and tasteful chair routine to the famous Liza Minnelli song from the 1970s musical film.


Their energetic enthusiasm raised £600 for the town’s Tsunami Scout group.


One of the dancers, town centre resident Kathryn Napier Bax, said: “It was fun to do. It was a bit nerve-wracking but we all managed it all right. Despite my spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia and other medical problems, I’m sure it helps me to keep fit and certainly active.


“I would recommend it anyone, even if they think they can’t do it.”


The performance took place at Bersted Park Community Centre in front of an audience which was about 60 strong.


The Golden Girls dance group made its debut last March at a charity showcase with Pole Passion Bognor to raise more than £800 for the Village Friends charity.


A spokeswoman for the group said: “The Golden Girls are a group of 50-plus ladies who want to get fit, have a bit of fun, and not take life too seriously.


“Their humour and love of life shines through in their performances.”


Classes in chair dance, pilates and pole fitness take place at 1.30pm on Thursdays at the Laburnum Centre.
