    I'll show this thread to my lovely wife, she just this summer took early retirement from teaching school at 57 to concentrate on her dancing. She wants to do more tribal style, I suggested the stage name of "Tribal Granny" but for some reason she didn't go for it.

    Around here most of the best dancers are in their fifties plus (or getting close) and there's one lady who regularly performs with a troupe who is about 78.

    (With apologies to the remembrance service...)

    Tribal Granny...he he he. Can I use the name instead?

    One of my former students, aged 70, performed at a big show in May, and she even had a hip replacement a year prior to the show. She was absolutely gorgeous!

    Okay, now I'm beginning to get embarrassed for having indulged in my little ego session. I'm actually not all that stuck on myself, but I really was up there on a pink cloud for a few hours. Thank you all for being so nice to me about it. I adore every one of you.

    Wow, and I thought that my 60 year old student was brave This lady is even more brave and she looks gorgeous But here is a picture of my 60 year old student Elisa, performing at our last Oriental Flow show:

    She was very proud of being the oldest in the ensemble and she even asked me to mentioned it at the end of the show, when I present the dancers to the audience

    No - don't be embarrassed!!! I really want to see posts like this! As a 40 year old newbie, this sort of thing hammers it home that I'm not to late to start! I'm not too old to learn! In 13 years, maybe I can bring the roof down too

    I think your choice of music was great! what a riot that must have been. I completely understand why you don't want to wind up on youtube, but I wish I could have seen it!
