Our inspiration of the day is John Lowe who took up ballet at the age of 80 after watching his granddaughter’s dance recital. He had his first starring role as a professional dancer when he was 88 years old. At 96, he was still dancing.
Lowe was a prisoner of war during WWII. He endured three and half years of starvation in Japanese prison camps. After the war he became a teacher and a theater director.
John says that ballet enables him to keep his spine straight and to trick time. His motto is “Find something that will completely change your life”.
