Yvonne Dowlen discovered a lifelong love of figure skating the moment she stepped on the ice. Her passion led to a career as a touring performer with the Ice Capades that lasted almost 50 years. Still skating competitively at the age of 90, Dowlen shares her inspiring story in this touching short from Balcony Nine Media and reminds us all that, 'what you do with your life and what you find enjoyable with your life is up to you.'

We are just so love with Yvonne and this film, that we are now thinking of forming our own Age of No Retirement figure skating team. What do you think? Enjoy the film 'Edges' below, by Katie Stjernholm and Jonathan Hiller. You can find more about them here.
