2 Ageless Wonders Enter A Dance Competition – Then Everyone’s Jaws Hit The Floor

Nobody likes to get old.

Your joints start to stiffen, you begin to lose that boundless vigor, your skin unfortunately loses its elasticity, and life in general just gets harder.

As such, some say there’s no such thing as “aging gracefully.” They say everyone goes through the terrible downturn and no matter what you do, you can’t look past the negatives.

But it isn’t true.

People are living longer and longer these days and no, not everyone over the age of 65 is a bitter old crank who can’t stand the idea of old age and vents this frustration on younger people.

There are wonderful shining examples of senior citizens living life to the fullest, and smiling the whole way.

You can find these examples everywhere online and every last one is hugely inspiring, and should make us all feel just a little better about the complicated aging process.

Case in point:

The following video totally blew up on Facebook and now, everyone is starting to think, “gee…maybe getting old ISN’T so bad.”

These two Boogie Woogie wonders tear up the dance floor and people just can’t stop applauding this vivacious display.

Dancers Nellia, 64, and Dietmar, 70, captivate the audience and the rest of the internet by proving one incontrovertible fact:

You’re only as young as you feel.

Thousands of comments have poured in since the video was posted and most are from younger individuals who say things like, “Even I can’t dance like that!”

This is the inspirational effect some incredible senior citizens can have, and that effect is best seen in the long string of reactions.

Here’s a screen grab of some of the more recent comments:

What’s not to like about this? How can you NOT smile when watching?

And at the end of the day, yes, we all have to get old. But such moments prove that we can not only age gracefully, but also with immense energy and happiness.

Not everyone will be able to pull off Nellia and Dietmar’s performance at their ages, but that’s okay. The important thing is to keep having fun!

And maybe someday you’ll produce a video that makes all the youngsters smile. 😉
