Three days a week women over 50 from different parts of Atlanta meet at the Dynamo swim club in Chamblee for water aerobics class. Most of them are here for class that gives them a low impact exercise option. To pass the time during lessons many of them sing old songs - one of which dates back to 1881. Some of their favorites are Bicycle Built for Two, Sweetly Sings the Donkey , and Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

The most interesting thing, when watching the class, is the way the ladies seemingly transform back into girls, laughing and giggling … at least when the instructor isn't looking.
