MARIETTA, Ga. – When Joyce Dixson is moving to the music, she finds joy.
“She’s always danced. She taught me how to dance in the middle of our living room,” her daughter, Kathy Robinson told WSB-TV’s People 2 People.
Joyce, now 82, was a military wife and often joined her husband at a club on the military base.
“Every Saturday night, they always went out. He was in the Air Force,” said Kathy.
Joyce and her husband will soon celebrate their 63rd wedding anniversary, but a bad knee has kept her from moving much these days. Thanks to the nonprofit Second Wind Dreams, she’s now getting back in the groove.
The foundation offered Joyce special line dancing lessons.
Kathy attended the special lesson with her mom and said she immediately say a difference in her demeanor.
“It’s a happiness that I can re-live because I can see her re-live some of the joy that she had in her life,” said Kathy.
