Finally made it to Intermediate!

I started dancing five years ago at age 39, started competing at 41. I had a goal of making it to Premier and being the oldest competing highland dancer in my area. It was looking nearly impossible but this weekend I got my final Novice stamp! I can't believe I forgot to get a picture.

To those who think you are too old, too heavy, too out of shape, too uncoordinated to dance...I am living proof it can be done! I am all of those things but mostly I am persistent.

Congrats Lori!!

Thanks for letting us 'older' dancers know We 'Can' do it.

I'm still working on getting out of Novice.. have had to put dance to the back burner this year.. but am determined to get back at it as soon as I can!

Hope to meet up with you in Premier one day (maybe we can get them to offer a 'Masters' category ;) )

Congratulations! As a 35-year-old dancer who just moved up to Premier, I can relate. Good luck in Intermediate.
