SUBANG JAYA: They may be grandmothers but that didn't stop them from grooving to the beat of chart-toppers by Fergie and Black Eyed Peas.

MCA Kelana Jaya division chairman Ong Chong Swen (fourth from left) says women should come forward and play a more active role in their neighbourhood activities.

Some of these grandmas, were among the 130 women who performed at the Subang Jaya Line Dance Party at Lake View Club recently.

The women, aged between 30 and 70, practised during their weekly line dance sessions on the USJ5 field under the supervision of their instructor, Grace Goh.

Their efforts paid off as the appreciative crowd cheered during the performance.
 

Peggy Ho, 65, whose looks belie her true age, said she has never felt better since learning line dancing from a friend in Singapore eight years ago.

"I was determined to continue dancing as I really enjoyed it. My husband has passed away and my children are all grown up. I feel free to dance whenever I want," said Ho.

The line group members each pay a RM5 monthly fee. The youngest member is in her 20s while the oldest is in her 80s.

Another member, Angie Ng, said the dance sessions kept her in shape.

"Women should concentrate on their well being and make time for exercise or other activities that will keep them in shape," she said.

MCA Kelana Jaya division chairman, Ong Chong Swen, who attended the line dance party, said since September last year, her division has organised a number of activities on a monthly basis for the community.

Among those were the Mooncake Festival, Christmas and Chinese New Year celebrations, karaoke for senior citizens and paintball during the Mother's Day celebrations.

"Women should come forward and play an active role in their neighbourhood activities. We don't just discuss political matters but also focus on community affairs," said Ong.
