    "My first experience of a Tracks show was the wonderful Lipstick and Ochre in 2008. I fell in love with the Grey Panthers then, in all their sparkly wonder... and the fascination continues. I enjoy how much care and consideration they put into their costumes and accessories for live performances! So cool. They are also lively! They giggle, chatter and mess around a lot and certainly know how to have a good time. They are fiercely committed to their dancing. I love that! They have great spirit as a group and are open and willing to try new ideas in the Tracks dance studio. They're my tropical Grans. They're a testament to the energising nature of dance... in my eyes they're powerful. I speak about them fondly to friends and family when I am away from Darwin and think every town should have a group just like it!"  Jess Devereux
