The four talented dancers line danced in a Glasgow street to raise awareness for isolation

The four talented dancers, aged between 50-90 years old, are part of a community run group set-up to combat isolation in the Possilpark area.

They meet up in Possilpoint Community Centre for a couple of hours every week to exchange gossip, banter, friendly company and of course for line dancing practice. 

Ann, the project manager of Young Possil Futures who support the group and provide food and supplies at their social events, said: ‘This is the best street performance I’ve ever witnessed and blessed to call them my besties.

‘For most of the group it is a fun way to keep mobile and get soft exercise.

‘They are a very special and we at YPF are blessed to be friends with them.’
