HELGA HENRIKSEN

THE DANCE OF LIFE

“We loved to dance, my husband and I. We often went to the’ local’ together with Inger and her husband. The tango was our favourite and once we were selected for a competition. They sometimes dance here at the nursing home, and they ask me if I want to join in. I do have one principle: I don’t dance with ladies!”
