In general, in terms of providing our elderly audience with entertaining effects, dancing may be the best. Singing is better than instrument playing; and duet is better than solo.
In singing, old popular love songs in 1920s-1940s are the best. Popular hymns, folk songs, or very popular after-1950 songs are also appreciated. But they usually do not draw responses as enthusiastic as those during 1920s-1940s do. Songs after 1970s may be liked by performers themselves, but rarely excite the NH audience.
Other types of non-musical performances are also warmly welcome. Gongfu, story telling, aerobics, magic tricks, standing-comedian jokes/acts, among others, are good examples. If you can bring your well-behaved dogs or cats for patting and love sharing, that will be wonderful, too.
