Westchester County Legislator David Tubiolo (Yonkers & Mount Vernon) has secured the appropriate funding with Mae Carpenter, Director of Senior Services & Programs, to ensure the annual ‘Senior Summer Show’ will take place.


‘Seniors on the Move’ will be performing their 30th annual summer show, “On The Road To Happy”, on Thursday, June 29th at the Ukrainian Youth Center (301 Palisade Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10703).


“My predecessor and mentor Bernice Spreckman started our amazing talent filled ‘Senior Summer Show’ thirty-years ago, keeping seniors active, exercising, healthy and happy. I’m happy to continue her legacy keeping seniors as active and engaged as possible both physically and mentally, it’s important to stay active and involved, which helps avoid the struggle with senior isolationism,” said Legislator Tubiolo.


Senior isolation is prevalent with over 1/3 of all senior citizens living alone, which increases the risk of mortality, poor mental health, dementia, unhealthy behaviors, depression, elder abuse and several other consequences.


“I’m happy that David is continuing the legacy I’ve built for seniors in Westchester County, he works with me, advocating together for all seniors in our wonderful county” said Bernice Spreckman.


“The way to stay young is to keep moving, and it’s much more fun to move while you dance. Our group becomes like a theatre family, working together and supporting each other” said Judy Ayers.


Noel Hart is the Music Director, Judy Ayres is the Artistic Director, Barbara Gallo is a Choreographer, David Tubiolo and Bernice Spreckman are both producers. 


On Thursdays, beginning on March 16 at the Ukrainian Youth Center, Noel Hart will be conducting the chorus rehearsals at 10:30 a.m. with Judy Ayres teaching Jazz and Latin dance at 12:00 p.m. On Fridays at Coyne Park Senior Club at 1:30 p.m. Barbara Gallo will be teaching tap and Jazz.


“It’s always a delightful afternoon, seniors once again prove they still have it, in terms of entertaining each other, putting together a fantastic show and it’s enjoyable for all ages” said Mae Carpenter.


We welcome all people who would like to act, dance, sing or even watch in the audience. If anyone is interested in participating in our wonderful show please call (917) 208-1746 for more information.
