What is it like to grow old in the 21st century?
My name is Ann Shaw. As a former journalist who re-invented myself in my 50's as an artist this blog will document some of my journey and that of my friends too.

Dancing - Young and od
Our Spanish dancer
This is Victor, our young Spanish dancer whom I had heard so much about. He’s keen to add tap to his repertoire so he joined our group of Happy Tappers some weeks ago. ( Yes, yes I know…wrong age, wrong sex but hey! whose complaining?)
I had not met him until today because I have missed several weeks and I was curious to see the effect he had on our class. Suddenly the presence of a young male had energised all the tappers and I had never seen them dance to well!
However, Victor earns his living working in the tourist industry and the season is about to start.
But he has approached our dance teacher, Anne Aiken, ( pictured with him) about starting up a class in Callander. I suspect there will be a queue of women in that small Trossachs town who suddenly have a desire to take up tap-dancing…
