WATCH: "Black and White Girls" dance a storm
THE LADIES at Fraser Shores Retirement Villages don't let numbers get in their way.
Kitted out in wigs, sunglasses and monochrome black and white outfits, the sprightly dancers between about 70 and about 90 years, entertained a crowd on Saturday with an optical illusion spectacular.
The troupe of eight dancers plus four back-stage managers had practised since February to perform for the first time the four minute skit at the Fraser Shores Retirement Village Hall.
The dance group's spokeswoman, Margaret Crump, said the group was inspired by a similar performance undertaken by younger ladies.
"We saw a similar one to this on YouTube... and we thought, 'can we do this?" she said.
"So we changed the music and we changed the steps, but we had the same sought of concept and we put it together."
"I just think they have done a brilliant job."
