80 years on and still dancing

The Pointed toes team was inspired by an amazing women Roey Pokrass, 80, who has taught dance exercise classes for over 30 years at the Range Line School in Mequon

Roey's mother continued to dance until she was 102 years of age and she will try and follow in her mothers foot steps by doing the same.

Pokrass has said, " I'm going to bop until I drop."

Where are they now?

So you think you can dance Season 3 has already been launched and the Pointed Toes team was thinking about the last two seasons and we were interested to see what some of the previous dancers were up to after becoming stars.

The word on the street is the winners from the past two seasons Jack Chambers (Season 1) and Talia Fowler (Season 2) have both been travelling around the US, Jack has been choreographing in New York and Talia has been performing in a number of productions and will star in FAME: The Musical which is coming to Australia later this year.
