Remembering Roger - I Tip my Hat

October 3, 2023

Sharing the sad news that much-loved Ascendance dancer, Roger, sadly passed away last Monday. 

We last saw Roger as he proudly shared his song that he wrote with the Swan Song Project.

He was so pleased of his life's achievement and the video that he produced to go with it. Please give it a watch over on You Tube by clicking the link and giving it a like.  

Roger was a much loved member of the Ascendance family, turning up to as many classes and events that he could and always being one to experiment with the digital features on our zoom classes an virtual backgrounds. We will miss him dearly. 

I will share details of the funeral and arrange for a card to be sent to his brothers.

Here is a link to the wonderful project he took part in - they are always looking for new people to work with.

"Always smiling and happy; very polite and courteous; an enthusiastic zoom dancer who loved to pretend he was somewhere more exotic; loved acting as well as dancing; wearing hats and putting on a a costumes. Roger had a zest for life and will be sorely missed."
