AGING WITH ATTITUDE – John Lowe

Leave a comment

Lowe

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”.
