Florida’s most dedicated dance team shakes up the outdated image of “the little old lady” and calls for everyone to dance their hearts out, while they still can. Calendar Girls is a coming-of-golden-age film about the second teenage phase: the retirement phase, following senior volunteer dancers in Southern Florida, who are determined to prove that age is just a number.
Through revealing conversations and choreographed dance scenes, the film captures the challenges of being a woman over 60 and the delicate balance of family, home and dance.
