From Broadway and Vegas to Hollywood and San Diego, the San Diego County Rhinestone Grannies are a group of talented grandmothers who share a love for dancing, singing, and entertaining. Through every dance, song, and comedy, the grannies embrace each day as a gift and encourage audience members to feel the same.

76-year-old grandmother Adrienne Hart, is the founder of the entertainment group and the leader of the troupe, and she holds dance and singing classes at La Mesa Adult Enrichment Center off La Mesa Blvd, La Mesa every Monday, and at El Cajon’s Infinity Dance Arts Studio every Wednesday. The classes range from intermediate to advanced, and they encourage participants to stay healthy and active.

The Rhinestone Grannies have an important goal in mind: “to be the top resource for groups & troops that feature tappers, dancers, twirlers & cloggers over the age of 55 to meet and share ideas and check out what’s happening in the current world of senior dance,” according to the troupe’s Facebook page.

Staying fit and active over the age of 55 is essential to maintaining muscle mass and preventing the risk of joint pain, back pain, osteoarthritis, or osteoporosis. Research shows that just 30 minutes of moderate exercise can lower your risk of heart disease and increase health benefits as you age.

You too, can make exercise fun and entertaining like the Rhinestone Grannies! Whether it’s taking a moderate dance class, practicing your vocals, or stretching out your muscles, it’s never a bad idea to get your body moving!
