Richard Teare of the AVMM, said; “Evelyn immediately picked-up the movements and steps, dancing near to the youngest member of her family, aged two.

He added: “With five generations of the Phillips family present and an age gap of 98 years this is a perfect example of the universal appeal of dance.”
