** Thank you to everyone who attended one of our January orientations. **

Friends sitting on porch

Are you starting to think about the next years of your life? Do you want it to include things like music, dance, creativity and the arts? So do we!   We are the Triangle Traditional Music and Dance Retirement Society!  (We shorten that to “TTMADRS” or “2T”.)

We are a group of pioneers in the creation of a retirement community in Central NC focused on arts, healthcare, and innovative housing who have been researching, educating and creating possibilities for community living where people can experience playfulness, creativity, simplicity and meaning through all of the stages of their lives.


Update August 2023

We realize that the information on this website ends with our Purchase and Sales agreement from over a year ago, as our efforts are focused on getting things done rather than keeping these pages updated.

And now those efforts definitely have gotten something done. After a year and a half, we have closed on the Purchase and Sales agreement. Our land purchase and predevelopment cooperative, Hands Four Development, is the proud owner of 90.133 acres of land in Orange County, NC.

Excitement. Satisfaction. Renewed energy for the push to submit the zoning application. Hands Four Development is planning its first Annual meeting in September. We are working with multiple Orange County departments as well as other professionals as we explore the options for a continuum of care - health, wellness and caring in the community from entry through the remainder of life.

Folks who have completed an orientation and have become 2T members are kept informed via monthly meetings and/or updates. Consider joining the 2T community for access to all of the details.

Interested in 2T?

Please explore our website and sign up for an online information/orientation session to learn more.

There are no more orientation sessions schedule for January 2024.

If you are interested in attending a future orientation, you can indicate whether you prefer Weekend afternoons or Weekday nights to help in our scheduling. Sign up below!

Even with everything else going on, we are always looking for new community members.
