They are magical reindeers at parties and churches, pink fluffy unicorns at Air Force reunions, and zombies at retirement homes. They are the Calendar Girls – Florida’s most dedicated dance team for women over 60.

Calendar Girls is a coming-of-golden-age film about the second teenage phase – the retirement age. It’s a time to redefine yourself, to find the person you once were or the person you’ve always wanted to be.

Through intimate portraits and choreographed dance scenes the film captures the challenges of being a woman over 60. Friendship, tears, humor, aging, relationships and identities take on new shapes and new dreams are born.

Calendar Girls is a life-affirming dance documentary that is shaking up the outdated image of what it means to be an “old lady”. And it’s a call for everyone to dance their heart out, while you still can.
