Every year the National Council on Ageing and other sister organizations, celebrate Women’s Month by participating in activities to recognize the role of women and their contribution to society. This year , the NCA teamed up with the Belmopan Senior Steppers to put on a Senior Women’s Variety Show on the 27th of March 2011 at the George Price Center. The Variety Show featured twelve performances and involved over 30 performers. The seniors created their own items and practiced for two months in preparations for the nights events.
Performers ranged in age from 56 to 89. There were musical performances by the Senior Steps Singing group and two solo performances. The audience was wowed by three dance performances: dancing in the round by ten Senior Steppers; a Salsa routine and a Mestizo cultural dance featuring four dancers in costumes they had hand painted. There was also three poetry performances and the show came to an end with a short skit followed by a final dance in which all the Senior Steppers took the stage to perform the Macarena and the Electric Slide.
