When someone tells you you are too old for something, just give them this video and you will never hear of it again! One grooving grandma proves that you can never be too old to bust a move, as she throws down some serious moves on the dance floor during a resident’s disco. Beginning with a tentative sway from side-to-side, 87-year-old Jean Hupp, from Decatur, Illinois, proves to be quite the mover, taking center stage on the dancefloor during a birthday party at her assisted living community, Eagle Ridge of Decatur.
Shown dancing to Marcia Griffiths’ ‘Electric Slide’, wild assisted living resident Jean decided to add a twist of her own to the instructor’s choreography, in search of something that is a truer match to her vibrant character.
Jean has been a dancer her entire life and her tidy toe-taps soon erupt into a joyous jive. The lively grandmother swings her arms side to side in perfect synchronization to her feet and the beat. Just when we thought she can’t get any groovier, Jean busts an Elvis leg-shake for good measure. The frail-looking lady beams throughout the entirety of her improvised routine, proving that she’s still got it – even eight decades after her affinity for performing first began.
