2004 Grey Panthers

Text 

Tracks Dance Studio, Frog Hollow for the Arts, Darwin City

Throughout the year, 2004

Over 60's Dance Troupe and Classes

In 2004 the Grey Panthers remain fit, healthy and active members of Darwin’s cultural life, creating nine small-scale one-off performances that were seen by over 2,500 people. New women continue to join and Friday mornings sees the Tracks Dance Studio packed to bursting. The Grey Panthers are seen as exemplary role models for the seniors in Darwin. They ‘live’ a life style that shows the health benefits of a creative dance experience.

Who saw the women this year? The Arthritis Foundation function at Government House, Danila Dilba Chronic Conditions, Administrators Pleasure at the Darwin Entertainment Centre, Breast Cancer Awareness, Respiratory Care, Seniors Week, Palmerston University of the Third Age (U3A), everyone at the Darwin Christmas Tree Lighting, and the launch of the Portrait of A Senior Territorian.
