Billie Jordan

Billie established The Hip Op-eration Crew; a hip hop dance group consisting of members aged 71 to 96 years old. They are in the Guinness World Records as the oldest dance group in the world and have performed at the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas, and to an audience of 15,000 at the Taipei Arena in Taiwan. 

They have competed in the NZ National Hip Hop Championships three times and won their division at the Auckland Regional Hip Hop Championships in 2016. 

A feature documentary film called Hip Hoperation about Billie's mission to get her elderly neighbours to the World Hip Hop championships has been playing in cinemas all over the world and has won many prestigious awards. 

Billie was the recipient of a Queens Honour (MNZM) in 2016 and received the New Zealander of the Year award in the Local Hero category in 2015.  

She has now launched her Hip Op-eration Dance Academy in every country in the world and also runs an international travel company taking senior citizens on unique adventures to maximise their potential. 

Hear the inspiring story of how Billie changed the lives of her elderly neighbours and how they changed hers.
