One hundred-year-old dancer Eileen Kramer still taking to the stage

Dancer and choreographer Eileen Kramer says there is really only one reason people are talking about her upcoming show: that she has been alive “for such a long time.”

Eileen is a neat 100-years-old, an age she describes as magical.

“Everything happens at 100, everything changes. I had five parties here in Australia when I turned 100,” she said.

Eileen started dancing long before her centenary year, at the tender age of 22, “coming to it late,” she says.

She first studied singing piano at the Conservatorium of Music but was soon introduced to the Vienna-borne Bodenwieser Modern Dance Company.
