It’s not unusual to see teenagers socializing at prom, but a group of them helped some senior citizens to cut a rug at a formal dance.

The Corona del Sol High School Key Club volunteered and organized a senior prom at the Sunrise of Chandler senior living community last month.

The dance featured a DJ, decorations and, of course, dancing.

Sunrise offers assisted living, memory care and short-term stays for residents.
