She wanted me to send a recent photo. I replied saying it was!
I hung up my shoes 17 years ago to be precise. What made me change my mind was an email that was circulating, forwarded by my ex husband, looking for mature dancers 50 plus. My daughter Crystal was with me and she read it and encouraged me to reply. I was apprehensive at first, but then thought, why not! So I sent a photo I had taken on holiday, as that’s all I had, and a bit of background history, (short bio). Didn’t know if I would hear back, but to my surprise I did! Cindy Gasser replied saying she was very interested in me, but wanted me to send a recent photo. I replied saying it was … she must have thought I look good! lol …
“How have you kept yourself fit over the years to be able to do a show at 57?
JH: Yes, at 57 I have kept myself fit by exercise, salsa and recently I have taken up ballroom and Latin American dancing, after being inspired by Strictly Come Dancing.”
