Hot Rods, Root Beer Floats and Dancing at Therapeutic Art & Wellness Program (Grace) 50’s Sock Hop!

The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) Therapeutic Art & Wellness (Grace) Program held their Annual Spring Dance on Friday May 19. Keeping it nostalgic with a 50’s Sock Hop theme, the multi-purpose room at Bascom Community Center was decorated in true 1950’s classic diner fashion, complete with a photo booth for members to capture some timeless memories. The dance kicked off with a surprise visit from the Eradicators Car Club, a group dedicated to the restoration and enjoyment of hot rods and classic cars, who brought seven classic cars. The dinner menu included delicious burgers, fries, and root beer floats. A singles and couples twist dance off with awards for best dancing couple, best twist, best hula hooper, and best 50’s costume added to the fun. The Therapeutic Art & Wellness Center creates a culture of wellness with meaningful social, recreational, and therapeutic programming. Its goal is to guide and empower adults with mental illness and other cognitive disabilities in need of behavioral health services on a path to healthy lifestyles. For more information, contact Neil Rufino, PRNS Acting Deputy Director, at 408-535-3576.
