1998 Grey Panthers


Brown's Mart Community Arts, Darwin City

Throughout the year, 1998

The Panthers began 1998 with regular weekly workshops and then performed at the launch of Ausdance Dance Week in Raintree Park, doing their line dance 'Achy Breaky Heart' from Healthy Wealthy and Wise.

Part way through the year Sarah Calver moved to be independent from Tracks. In this move, for this period,  the Grey Panthers also became independent from Tracks. Tracks still maintained support and connection with the group, with David still assisting with some classes.

While Tim Newth and David McMicken were working on the Palmerston Performance Project, they met Bette Chapman and Lucy Aylett, both who became new Grey Panther members. This increased our reach into Palmerston and beyond.
