Pompoms rustle and silver shoes flash as "Japan Pom Pom" practices, moving to a lively cheer dance beat. With members ages 60 to 89, they're no ordinary squad. But don't you dare call them grannies. Originally started with five people 26 years ago after Takino saw an overseas senior cheer squad in the news, the group now has 17 active members. Members, all older than 55, must pass auditions. Now the group is featured in government pamphlets about active seniors, appears periodically in TV reports, and performs in popular charity shows.

The Wider Image: Don't call us grannies: Meet Japan's senior cheer squad
Fumie Takino, 89, founder of a senior cheer squad called Japan Pom Pom, rides a subway as she heads to her team's weekly practice session in Tokyo, Japan, April 5, 2021. Picture taken April 5, 2021. "The last three or four years I've started to feel tired a lot more easily. Then having to be home because of the pandemic really meant my stamina fell. I don't feel anything while I'm practicing, but then the next day I feel pretty tired," Takino said. "I forget everything while I'm dancing."
