Grandmother of two, Sim Peng, 72, participated in an intergeneration dance-pair competition at the PA Dancethon with ITE student, Raudhah Zahirah, 19, and was the top three winning dance pairs. Raudhah shared that they learned the dance in two days for two to three hours each day. She said Sim Peng is better than her, while Sim Peng called Raudhah “a good partner”.
The senior has been doing line dancing for more than 10 years, belly dancing for two years and K-pop dancing for one-and-a-half months. In the past, she has also picked
up folk dancing. Raudhah shared that dancing with Sim Peng has “opened up” her perception of seniors.
“I thought she couldn’t dance! She gave me motivation to dance on the stage as I am shy.”
