Belle Hollow's Lucy Armitstead was joined by some fun folks recently as the first in an ongoing series of dance socials took place. The theme for the night was An Evening of Salsa Dancing.
“One of our New Year's resolutions as a company was to increase community engagement,” Armitstead said. “That's one of my passions. So, having lots of events on a consistent basis was something that we could launch, and those events will fall into four main categories, Walk, Dance, Read, and Work.”
Several couples showed up for the first dance social. Salsa instructors guided participants through the requisite moves as sultry Latin music played. Latin- inspired food and beverages were served as well.
“Tonight is about Salsa dancing, but we'll try different styles of dance as we go forward,” Armitstead said. “We would love to have a dance social once a month. Our book club is launching in March. On Tuesdays, we will have mall walkers in Miss Lucille's Marketplace. And we are opening Miss Lucille's Cafe from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday and going for more of a coffee shop atmosphere.”
