A few weeks ago a dance troupe comprised of women of all shapes and sizes, all over the age of forty, gave a performance to a gorgeously remixed version of Chaka Khan’s classic, “Ain’t Nobody” in the heart of New York City. Why? Because they love to dance… and they could. We are pleased to share their journey with you- plus a look at the performance day. We think you’ll be as inspired as we are. Watch the video, and check back for stories about some of the amazing women that participated.
The troupe gathers at Chico’s NYC headquarters to warm up and go through the routine a few more times. Our cameras are on hand to capture it all.
Now for the fun part: everyone into hair and makeup!
The excitement is building! Time to get dressed…
The troupe heads to the performance spot, New York City’s Worth Square, just west of iconic Madison Square Park, and two blocks to the north of the famous Flatiron Building. It’s a neighborhood teeming with tourists and office workers.
It’s go time! Everyone’s jitters are calmed as the music starts to play, and a crowd begins to gather.
Joy and celebration, as the performance ends.
Back at Chico’s HQ. Success! A great end to a great day!
Check back over the next few days to learn more about the dancers, starting with Lisa. We can’t wait to share their inspirational stories with you!
