I love the timelessness of vintage clothing. It started with me through my childhood dress up box with my mum and aunties clothes from the 70’s and 80’s. There’s something about sensory nostalgia that manifests itself in vintage clothing and retro shops. No matter what decade or era you have a soft spot for, I think we all know what a smell or a piece of music can do to us - how it transports us to a memory or place that truly makes us feel at home. I love the tradition and ritual of being able to pass things on from generation to generation - to me it’s pure magic!
Roller Dance in Australia has taken awhile to take off. Quad Fit has really been at the vanguard. Being active as you get older as a woman is especially important. I want to be strong and athletic, and it doesn’t feel like effort to skate. For me, Quad Fit is just as much about connecting socially and supporting each other as being physically fit. Most of us are mums, and some are a little bit older, and skating doesn’t feel like going to the gym. It feels more like fun, especially when the music's playing!
