SEPTEMBER 30, 2023


Sunshine Place celebrated its 9th anniversary on September 30, 2023, bringing together both new and longstanding members in a joyful gathering. The event featured nostalgic music and dance performances presented by talented students from the recreation center's classes. Attendees arrived in their finest Barbie-themed attire, and the coveted Best Dressed awards were bestowed during the latter part of the program.

The highlight of the event included captivating performances by the Social Ballroom class, Tap Dance class, a mesmerizing Rumba dance by art student Ms. Fang Fang Li, and a delightful piano and vocal performance by Mr. Tony Pastor.
