Drop it like it’s GC!

This work forms the beginnings of a documentary project exploring the potential impact of dance among people in their Third Age. Breaking away from traditional dance projects with the elderly; challenging stereotypes of older peoples capabilities and creating a more optimistic view of ageing in our society.

Killing your babies – its hard!


Tea Dance, Camden Centre, London (2011).

This image didn’t quite cut it for A Rendezvous with Mr Wonderful……just couldn’t get it to work with the other images which is a shame because I really like it….maybe because it looks more like a pinhole photo.  Quite a few favourites didn’t make the final selection. I’m surprised how ruthless I was with this edit but having the title for the project first really helped with this….shall try this approach more often!  Will post some more favs shortly…

Forget a few summer showers, London was drenched in a genuine European monsoon today but that did not stop this year’s Music at the Bandstand  which took inspiration from all things ‘vintage’, including a tea dance by Ragroof Theatre, who specialise in outdoor performances that engage and collaborate with audiences.  They host stylish afternoon tea dances for all ages and levels of experience with the sounds of the roaring 20s, 30s and 40s to help recreate the glamorous heyday of ballroom dance, with a dash of luscious Latin and scintillating swing thrown in.
