Usually, when people reach their eighties, it’s time to enjoy resting and slow down a little. Not for Suzelle Poole, who after seven decades of dancing is still teaching ballet and inspiring other ballerinas.
Suzelle is an inspirational story all by herself. She started writing poetry to entertain children in her classroom and ended up winning the Golden Poetry Award by the American Poetry Society. She followed her dancing dreams with great passion learning, performing and then teaching ballet. She was a soloist with the Houston Ballet and is well known for performing at an age many people are confined to wheelchairs.
During 2018, the graceful dancer took the stage and performed in a live-on-air Covid performance, which stole the heart of her both live audience and ones sitting at home. She is living proof of the saying, age is just a number.
Originally from London, she started dancing early in her childhood, at just seven years old. Eventually, becoming a professional ballet dancer, performing all over the globe. The lady, however, is still not ready to give up her trusty shoes yet. She still teaches at the Royale Ballet Dance Academy in Dallas, Texas.
She has successfully skilled in Dancing en pointe; an example is a video below. Even dancing on her toes, she looks like she is lighter than air. Furthermore, she performs in nursing homes too. Her faith lies in encouraging others to exercise. She added, “I’m fit, I take no medication, and I believe everyone would benefit from being exposed to ballet classes to their own level.” Watch the video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
