IN an Australian first, Logan seniors will be grabbing their dancing shoes this Friday night for the first annual grey light disco.

Hosted by the Crestmead Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), adults over 40 will able to hit the dance floor and move along to their favourite tunes.

Crestmead PCYC representative Karen Cavanagh said the centre already hosted discos for younger people once a month, but never before had there been a dance for elderly residents.

"There are plenty of night clubs for younger people, but for people aged 40 and above, they might not want to be in that sort of environment," Mrs Cavanagh said.

"So when they come here, they will be with others in their own age group enjoying themselves."

Music from well known artists such as Elvis, ABBA and Bruce Springsteen are among some of the songs requested by attendees.

Branch manager Sergeant Mel Cowie also said the PCYC are hoping elderly residents from nearby nursing homes will be interested in coming along on the night.

"We will be talking to nursing homes to find out if anyone is interested in joining us," Mrs Cowie said.

"We would be able to pick up the residents using our courtesy bus and then drop them home again."

The grey light disco will be held at the Crestmead Community Centre on Gimlet St, Crestmead on Friday, May 4 from 6pm until 8pm.

Cost of entry is $10 which includes a buffet of finger food snacks and tea and coffee.
