Age no barrier for dance duo
SENIORS determined not to slow down are stepping on to dance floors across Perth.
Duncraig resident Carole Metcalf (73) has paired up with Judi Grant (70), of Como, as The Silvertaps dancing duo.
“We have been competing in local dance competitions and festivals in the mature and motivated tap dance division,” Mrs Metcalf said.
The pair have danced under the banners Dance HQ and the James Luplau Dance Company and last month danced at the Mandurah Festival of Dance.
Earlier in the year, they competed in and won the West Coast Dance Festival at Sacred Heart College, the City of Bayswater Dance Festival, the West Coast Dance Festival held in Geraldton and the Star Search Festival held in Kwinana.
“We love to dance and hopefully can encourage other seniors to take up dancing in one form or another,” Mrs Metcalf said.
“We also are happy to perform for charity and fundraising functions, along with singers who accompany us.”
Carole Metcalf and Judi Grant are taking Perth by storm as The Silvertaps.
