The art of swing dancing dates back to the 1920′s. While some young people enjoy it as a hobby, it’s no surprise that the older generations still dominate the fun, energetic form of dance. Even so, I was not expecting what happened when this couple took the floor…
“Pete and Beulah Mae” seem to be just like any other grandparents at first sight. When they walked out onto the floor, no one expected them to do a whole lot of dancing. I mean, it looked like they were having enough trouble just walking. But of course, maybe they aren’t as old as they seem? 🙂
But when the music started playing? WOW! They put on an incredible show that combined astonishing dancing skill along with a good bit of humor. At first, I thought they were dancing in costume as old timers. But the more I watched, I realized that they ARE old timers! Wonderful. Something tells me that no matter how old these two dancers get, they will never be too early for dancing.
Now before we go any further, we have to apologize for the old time look of the video. This was initially captured on VHS tape using a camcorder, and it was recently “rediscovered” when the owners converted VHS to DVD. When ‘Madly Odd’ came across this video, we knew we had to share it with you.
Just remember how excellent TV quality is today and realize you and me have been very spoiled. Ok? So with that being said, please do enjoy this video. Best of all? You don’t have to rewind the tape when you’re done watching! Hurray for the Internet!
