Life Doesn't End At 60!


Chocolate Smiles tells the story of Patricia Lowe AKA "Chocolate Platinum,"

a 63-year-old line dancer, instructor and award-winning choreographer who reinvented her life after retirement from the probation department where she worked for over 30 plus years.


Told in documentary format, Mz. Patricia shares how line dancing has allowed her to explore different values, opened herself up to new experiences and meeting new people, and has changed the lives of many of her students who share what dancing with Mz. Patricia has meant to them. You hear about the challenges, the joys, the health benefits, her travels across country dancing and performing, and the rewards shared by several of her students.  But more importantly, you’ll rock to the music, learn a few dance moves, and just have fun watching a woman who is living her life with a rejuvenated sense of purpose.
