Grit and Resilience Playlists

4 (002).png Did you know that music is said to enhance focus, improve mental health, and boost the immune system as well as self-esteem and confidence? It can help you to relax, boost and lift your mood… it can also make you just want to get up and DANCE! 

In the spirit of getting people moving and grooving, we recently asked our community to tell us the top three songs that get them on their feet.

We’ve put those songs together to create Wangaratta LGAs very own Make Me Dance playlist which you can access below (you will need a Spotify account, it’s easy and free to set-up).

This is a collaborative playlist which means you can add your top dance songs to it too!

Remember this is for all our residents – so keep it clean. Songs with bad language will be removed.
