Never Too Late...

Thursday, April 18, 2013

The saying – ‘you are only as old as you feel’ totally applies to this awesome British gent! Well, speaking of ballet, I realized that it’s never too late to follow your passion, just have a look at John Lowe  who is 94 years old. He is also a grandfather of 11, who took up ballet at the age of 79. After years of being a soldier who fought in Malaysia and India in the Second World War and later working as an art teacher, he finally got himself a ballet bar for his home and started practicing his moves.  Since then he went on to be the lead at the Lantern Dance Theatre at age 88.  He says that he loves performing on stage and dancing gives him the most amazing feeling, not to mention the perks of listening to brilliant music and wearing tights :) Adorable and uplifting, don't you think? What's the one thing you always wanted to try? xo

P.S: Also, ballet moves by James Dean:)
P.P.S: Plus, La Prácitca.
