FRODSHAM, England -- Neighbors in England are following Gene Kelly’s example, while making the most out of social distancing amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The residents of a street in Frodsham, Cheshire, England have been taking part in socially distanced dance parties since the pandemic began.
Elsa Williams shared a video on social media which showed footage of her neighbors dancing in the rain with umbrellas, while the song “Singin’ in the Rain” played in the background.
Dance parties are a way to keep active and sociable during the coronavirus lockdown, and the video showed that neighbors didn’t let wet weather stop them.
On Twitter, Williams shared the video and wrote, “I don’t film it daily anymore, but evidence that social distance dancing on our street still happens daily at 11am. Even in the rain.”
On May 5, Williams shared another video of her neighbors dancing on the street, telling viewers that, “Today was day forty-two.”
