Dance First

At at young 78 years, Jan is currently tap dancing while I write this post. And she graces the dance floor for ballet on Tuesday nights. Jan is so gorgeous, inside and out and has been known to blow a kiss or two to the audience while she is dancing on stage during our annual show.

Jan took up dancing at 6 years old: ballet, tap and Scottish dancing. At 10 year old, she stopped. Her mum told her she was too old. 

Jan, I applaud you, your gorgeousness, your cheeky smile, and your passion.

The final word goes to Jan:

"I love it, I love the people, the energy and the rhythm. It just makes me feel good and happy."
