Spring Ridge hosted one heck of a dance competition on Valentine’s Day. Darrin Dockery, activities director for the assisted-living and memory-care facility in Tacoma, said residents and their partners practiced for the “Dancing with the Stars”-style competition for weeks. The room was packed to the rafters as each couple had 90 seconds to show their stuff on Feb. 14. Marketing director Bebie Rantalla, along with administrator Michelle Wyse and resident care coordinator Serah Thuo, were judges for the competition when residents were partnered with employees of Spring Ridge. Everyone enjoyed themselves, including spectators who stomped their feet, clapped and cheered for each couple.
