Martha’s Vineyard seniors have a prom of their own


At the Oak Bluffs Senior Center, Saturday night became prom night. Several venerable Vineyarders added dancing shoes to dignified outfits before taking to the floor to spin and swirl, glide and twirl to tunes from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Sponsored by the Friends of the Oak Bluffs Council on Aging, the evening took dancers back a few years, to the times when ballroom dancing was not only the rage, but the norm.
