About the Project
Dancing with Grannies was a commissioned performance by AAW! for the Women in Arts festival held in Newtown, 2011. For one month I joined a group of pensioners in dancing twice a week. We choreographed a routine together. This was then performed in Newtown on womens day. The biggest challenge was to get the ladies to come into town. For them, the inner city of Johannesburg was incredibly terrifying. But, after some coaxing with tea and cake and they came!
