Besides the fun, however, they also serve another purpose. They are a great opportunity for teachers to showcase their students, while they also help the participants build their confidence. At the same time, it brings the community together, which is always a good thing.
With a quick search on YouTube, it’s easy to find students’ performances during such events, and while many of them are entertaining and interesting, there are some that stand out.
The students, boys dressed up as elderly women, danced to the rhythm of “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It” by Beyonce. The audience that was taken aback when the “grandmas” entered the stage, soon started laughing and cheering for the students.
When the curtain opens, eight elderly women appear on stage, hardly walking, and all of them use walkers, canes, or crutches.
At some point, they all throw away their walking aids, and wait for the song to start.
