You just gotta see this!

I know the two of us aren't the only Seniors here, but when we complain being "too old" think about this couple who dance like when they were teenagers. He's 94 and she's 91 and WAY older than any of us. We can't dance like this anymore...oh wait, we never could.

I can't even do that now and I'm 20 years younger than they are. Kudos.

Oh my goodness. That's really impressive.I think that I want to sign up for dance lessons when it's safe to go out again. Maybe by the time we are that old we will be able to dance half as well as them.

I could do that if I wanted to...

and if I could dance
and had any kind of stamina
and had that kind of energy.

Wow. Reminds me of my grandmother who used to go square dancing. She loved showing me her swingy dresses

Oh my! I was out of breath and my joints were aching by the time they were done dancing! I guess the "use it or lose it" saying is right.

I'm back to say I've enjoyed watching this several times! I also really like his good looking outfit, complete with matching shoes. I'd love to know more about their personal life and history, I bet it's inspirational.
Here's their website, but it's in German...http://www.nellia.de/39801.html
Google translate can help if you want.

That was amazing! SHE was doing 80% of the work and boogying. He would occasionally get some footwork in, but she was the one working! Hard to believe she is 91 and can move like that.
