Samba performers entertain residents at North Vancouver retirement home (VIDEO)

Residents at a North Vancouver retirement home were treated to a sampling of samba recently.

Samba Fusion Vancouver, a dance group which derives its flair for performance from the numerous dance styles, music and rhythms of Brazilian samba, stopped by Amica Edgemont Village on June 26 for a short set.

In order to add some panache to the event, some staff members originally from Brazil assisted in preparing some South American treats for residents to enjoy during the performance, which took place outside the building adjacent to the recently reopened dining room of the retirement residence.

The performance was part of a larger Amica campaign to help residents combat isolation and help facilities connections with the community.

It was announced by the B.C. government recently that scheduled visits to long-term care homes free of COVID-19 outbreaks will be allowed to begin this month.
