THIS WEEK IN 1975: Props consortium could save groups

Have your say

A new dance company for older people is starting at The Point, Eastleigh.

The Rétrospectif Dance Company was trialled before the summer holidays, and now it is to run every week from September 15 as part of The Point’s extensive dance class programme.

Dance manager Vicki Hargreaves says she was approached to set up a class for older adults by a member of the community.

She says: ‘Rétrospectif is aimed at older adults with a passion to learn how to dance.

‘No previous dance knowledge is needed as everyone learns at their own pace.

‘Sessions focus on contemporary technique as well as giving members the chance to focus on their own creativity.’
