77-year-old ballet teacher still on her toes

“It seems amazing that I’m still dancing at 77,” says ballet teacher Suzelle Poole with a smile, “I really thought that I was going to be finished in my twenties.”

Time proved Ms. Poole wrong.

At Christmas 2017, she performed with some of her students at local care homes in the UK, where, she said, she was older than many of the residents.

Seven decades after she began taking ballet lessons, Ms Suzelle Poole still dances with grace, poise, and a confidence that is wonderful to behold. See for yourself in this inspiring three-minute video from the BBC:

Coincidentally, aging, dance and dementia seem to be linked somehow for me. Find more MAS dance-related articles here.
