Representing PPAO, Council Member and President of the Phuket Sports Association Saroj Angkanapilas delivered opening speech at a mass line dance fitness event at the Sunday walking street market in Thalang Road on the evening of February 15. The event was launched by Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwannasupana while Don Limnanthapisit, chairman of the Phuket Old Town Association, gave a welcoming speech. Also present was Supasak Nunsak, chair of Phuket Aerobic Muai Thai Line Dance Association. Invited guests and members of local fitness clubs took part at the event, whose byword roughly translates as “unite love, strength of mind and one nation.”
Remarking on the benefits of line dance, Mr Saroj said the aerobic line dance is a fitness program of choice for many people as it conditions many parts of the body and accompanied with music, is fun and relaxing to do. The Sunday walking street market on Thalang road is a popular venue frequented by locals and visitors. To make it even more lively and fun, the Aerobic Muai Thai Line Dance and other local fitness clubs have been approached to organize a mass fitness dance event which can be taken part by market goers.
