Trinity Laban’s All Singing All Dancing and Retired Not Tired programme hosts the GOLDs over-55 dance group from Australia on 1 October, as part of their European tour.
The tour co-incides with Older People’s Day, which is celebrated on 1 October internationally.
The GOLDs will spend the day with Trinity Laban’s All Singing All Dancing and Retired not Tired programme at the Laban Building, with both groups leading sessions in a day of joint classes and collaboration, culminating in an informal sharing of work.
GOLD (short for Growing Old Disgracefully) is a dance group made up of Canberra residents aged 55 and over, which was originally formed in 2011 as part of a community dance project run by Canberra Dance Theatre, and directed by performer and choreographer Liz Lea. The group is characterized by its quality, energy and humour, and has forged acclaimed collaborations with a number of major Australian venues including the National Gallery of Australia, National Library of Australia and National Museum of Australia.
Promoting collaboration and teamwork as well as a healthy lifestyle are values at the heart of Trinity Laban’s Retired not Tired programme, which comprises weekly singing, creative dance, and combined creative dance and singing sessions for participants aged 60+.
