May Luncheon: A Truly Hip Hop Speaker

Ric Carlyon - Friday, March 11, 2016

Billie Jordan fled from Canterbury after the earthquakes, moved to Waiheke Island only to get a whole lot of shakin’ going on there. 
Billie founded Hip ‘Op, moulding a group of senior citizens into a dance troupe extraordinaire where aches, pains and walking frames are ignored as Hip Hop takes over. 

Led by Billie, the participants with an average age of 79 became polished performers. Modern music, and with the volume turned up a bit at that, was tolerated, indeed welcomed, as the beat went on, accompanying the hip-hoppers all the way to the USA to perform on the world stage.

Billie Jordan will recall highlights of her remarkable Hip ‘Op journey from Waiheke to the show-biz of glitzy Las Vegas wen she's guest speaker at the Auckland Justice of the Peace in May. Details also in the website Members’ Section, including on-line registration as an option.
