1998 Grey Panthers

1998 Grey Panthers

    Text

    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.

    Partway through the year Sarah Calver moved to be independent from Tracks. In this move, for a 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 whom became new Grey Panther members. This increased our reach into Palmerston and beyond.
