Boot-scooters from Harvey, Australind and Waroona are back into the swing of things after a COVID-19-induced break.

The ladies were keen to put their dancing shoes back on and hit the studio at the Harvey Senior Citizens Centre last week.

Dance instructor Wendy Haines said everyone was delighted to be back after spending several months in isolation.

“It is wonderful to see everyone again,” Mrs Haines said.

“Dancing keeps the brain alive and it is also a lot of fun.

“It is great for people’s physical and mental health.”

Mrs Haines has been dancing for more than 20 years and started teaching four years ago.

She said the classes were open to everyone.

“We have beginner and more advanced lessons so everyone can join in,” she said.

The classes cost $5 and hare one every Tuesday at 10am and 1.30pm.

The classes join a range of other activities that have recommenced at the centre after a three-month hiatus.
