Gloves on for splash dance

JOHN Travolta was nowhere to be seen but the pink ladies were dancing up a storm yesterday in Springfield.

Twenty-two ladies from the Waterworx Gym and Pool aqua aerobics class performed a "Pink Glove" aqua dance to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Organiser Jill Campbell said the group had a great time after getting over a few inhibitions for the videoed performance.

"It's not easy for older ladies to get out and show our bodies but we did it and it was so much fun," Ms Campbell said. "Pink Glove dances began in America and have become quite a phenomenon."

The motto of the Pink Glove organisation is "the cure is in your hands" and the Springfield ladies donned pink gloves for their fundraising water dance.

The group has already raised $1300 for the foundation and hopes to add to that when the video is uploaded to YouTube.

The ladies danced to an original song entitled "You won't dance alone" which was penned especially for the Pink Glove organisation in the USA.

The finished dance video will also be available on the website of the Pink Glove organisation.
