Seniors Wearing Socks: Online Fitness Series Inspired by HPPR


Today, we welcomed a High Plains hero to the airwaves. Andrea Elise is an Amarillo native, and she’s been listening to High Plains Morning for years. However, it’s only in these last few months that she’s decided to turn her passion for music and dance into an online fitness series. Seniors Wearing Socks offers easy, low-impact, dance-based workouts that last for one song only. Her selections range from Devo to Elvis to the Mavericks. She hopes HPPR listeners will join her by trying some of the dances offered up—and burn a few calories in the meantime. I joined her for a dance to “Soulville” by Aretha Franklin, and she even provided the socks. (There’s even a cameo by HPPR’s-own Ruth Ellen Lynch.)

Have a great weekend, everyone. Keep dancing, and stay healthy. To hear our full interview, click the link below.
