Wild Woman of Dance: Great Grandma's Salsa

Everywhere you look, the age of this woman is different. When I found it, the piece said she was 92, and on this one, it says she is 80.

Even if she were 62, I would still be BLOWN AWAY. She dances like a TWENTY two year old.

Keep watching until she takes off her jacket. That's when the salsa starts.

Never say never.

So I had to go away and research this one, who is she, what's the true story? Turns out she's British! 75 years old, was a professional dancer in her youth (ballet and tap) but only started salsa lessons five years ago after her husband died. Just fantastic!!
