‘ Older people are often seen as no longer useful to society, I firmly believe that is wrong, deep down inside they are young at heart.
There is a concept that after 50 you are finished.
This workshop shows that older people can be creative and active, it creates a chance to say, no, we are not finished –
we have a lot to offer and look at us now!
Older people bring an energy and interpretation that can take your breath away with their commitment’

Carl Campbell feels strongly that older people have a lot to offer society, speaking in an interview on BBC1 Newsroom South East



Who are the Recycled Teenagers, are they dangerous – should we lock our doors? Of course not, they are a group of active older people taking part in an exciting dance programme run by Carl Campbell Dance Company 7 for people over the age of 50 upwards. The workshop uses the dynamic rhythms of Caribbean dance to ‘lively up’ its members from Southwark’s older community.

Recycled Teenagers meets every Tuesday from 1.30pm-3.00pm in the Peckham Pulse, Melon Road, Peckham.
