OLLI Southwestern Social
Dance has always been a part of human culture and celebrations.
Today, most dancing is about recreation and self-expression, although it can also be done as a competitive activity. And it’s a fun way to be active and stay fit.
On Oct. 26, you have the opportunity to join us at our OLLI Fall Social and show us your dance moves.

Here are a few of them:

- Improved muscle tone and strength
- Weight management

This year’s Fall Social will have a Southwestern theme. It presents the perfect opportunity for individuals looking to branch out and mingle. These events are designed to provide an engaging evening of food, fun and entertainment. The festivities feature live bands, dancing, competitions for prizes and more.
“We’re proud to offer these types of events that provide an opportunity for socializing,” said Meg Webber, program manager.
“Those attending our socials will be able to make new friends and strengthen existing relationships while they engage in activities they love with others who share similar interests. Studies have shown staying active can enhance quality of life and add years to an expected lifespan.”
Come for the Food. Stay for the Music.
Attendees will enjoy a delicious, catered, buffet-style dinner and dessert. Matching the night’s theme, the food will have a Southwestern flavor to it.
Back by popular demand, Marietta’s Sock Hops Band will provide a special set of musical selections. The local band features the combined talents of Courtney Oliver, Ward Hiss, Scott Cruse and Jim Mitchell. They specialize in the four-part harmonies from the 50s, 60s, and 70s — from The Four Seasons to The Four Tops, from The Temptations to The Tokens.
