Council on Aging's Community Dining program is driven to provide a “More than a Meal” experience. We strive to bring entertainment, educational presentations, and fun to seniors during our lunches. Recently in Sebastopol at Burbank Heights and Orchards, seniors were entertained by a talented group of youth from Nordquist-Taylor Ballroom Dance Studio. Students arranged a performance during their valued Spring Break vacation. They then had an intergenerational meal with our senior patrons.
Nordquist-Taylor is a program that provides a safe and comfortable environment where teens learn American-style social ballroom dance. Their classes build the student’s confidence and blend in a balance of social behavior, manners, and dress. One older adult said, “I was a ballroom dancer as a young child, and seeing these dancers brought me back, what a joy." The dancers enjoyed the experience as well.
Council on Aging provides a new program that integrates generations to bring a greater sense of purpose and community. The younger generation has the opportunity to better understand and learn from seniors. Seniors who are isolated and lonely have an opportunity to talk and feel more connected to the younger generations.

The opportunity to share wisdom as well as learn from other generations was enjoyed by all.
