What images come to mind when you think of “senior citizens”? If you think you must slow down as you age, the Sun City Poms would disagree.
The Sun City Poms are a group of ladies who turn aging stereotypes on their heads. For 11 months out of the year, this group performs energetic routines at conventions, sporting events, fundraisers, parades, and on television. They hail from Sun City, Arizona and spread the good news about aging. With an age minimum of 55, the Poms perform choreographed routines around the country that include headstands, pyramids, and splits.
The Poms show that age is just a number. I dare you not to smile while watching these beautiful and graceful women. No matter what their ages, these ladies are “having the time of their lives.”
