100 years old and going strong
100 years old – still dancing, creating in Bodenwieser dance – Eileen Kramer
Eileen Kramer arrived like an apparition at The Hughenden, in her flowing dress and graceful movements. She was then 99 years old.
She still sews and designs her own dresses. Something she did for the B by revolutionary choreographer Madam Gertrude Bodenwieser. Eileen was part of the famed ballet troupe.
Elaine told me many stories over breakfast and she’s just gorgeous – she toured across Australia, South Africa and India, USA – an extraordinary life.
Today she turned 100 years old and I’m going to go to a dance class she is running.
ABC Compass has been filming her and her life – look out for it on COMPASS – one of my favourite shows.
