Experiences and Insights into dancing into older age and suffering from arthritis

This blog is about Dancing Into Elder Years and suffering from Arthritis. The first post back in 2015.

I was inspired by the fact that I had auditioned to be a member of Prime. Prime is Scotland’s first semi-professional dance company for people aged over 60!

At that time, although I had my right hip replaced in 2010, arthritis was not a big issue in my life.

Being a member of Prime was!! Back then we were eight individuals with varied backgrounds in many different types of dance and physical theater.

We had the privilege of having a weekly class at Dance Base in Edinburgh.  We were taught by many fabulous teachers and had works made for us by the most inspiring and talented of choreographers.

These included Morag Deyes our artistic director, Angus Mclean Balbernie and Steinvor Palsson.
