MOSAIC Dreams – Judy’s Bucks Grand Dancer Dream

Judy is a resident at Azura of Fox Point. For as long as anyone can remember, Judy has always been the biggest Bucks fan – and never misses a game!

When Judy isn’t watching the Bucks game, you can find her out in our community room participating in exercise, crafts, and any other events our Quality of Life team is putting on. We have noticed that one of her favorite activities is dancing – that lady can move! So, to make Judy’s best day ever come true, we contacted the Bucks Grand Dancers to put on a special show for Judy at our assisted living and memory care home in Fox Point!

On Tuesday, March 29th at 3 PM, the Grand Dancers came to our home to not only put on a show for Judy, but also let her dance with them in a few of their routines! They actually were so impressed by Judy’s moves when we were organizing this, that they offered her to join them at Fiserv Forum for a REAL show!

Huge thank you to the Grand Dancers and everyone who took part in making Judy’s dream come true!
