The Ole Skool Crew is all that and then some. This fabulous dance team of over 40 women is living proof that we get better with time.
The ladies are a real crowd pleaser as they strut their stuff to old school 70’s and 80’s music at the LA Sparks home games.
Not only is their show entertaining, but it empowers women and squashes the myth that 40 is over the hill.
Traci Hawkins, the 48 year old director of the crew says “Women all around the world, no matter your age, you can get together and anything is possible, if you believe in yourself,”
These 40 and 50 something dancers say they are having the time of their lives and report benefits such as feeling more youthful, increased confidence, and a new outlook on life, as a result of performing with the team.
Hawkins told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin “We like to get out there and show what we’ve got going on and how well we do it after 40,” Hawkins said. “Our most important message is to inspire other men and women who are over 40 that life does not end at that age: It is just beginning. You can reinvent yourself … you can do anything you want to do in life just as long as you put your mind to it and you believe in yourself.”
At the time of this post, the Old Skool Crew Supreme Dance Team is looking for new dancers to join the 2011 team. Additional information is available by visiting the link above.
