Over the years, we’ve brought you tons of stories that defy stereotypes about the elderly.

Sure, some spend their afternoons playing bingo at the local Chick-fil-A, but others, like this 90-year-old ice skater, prove that you’re never too old to show off your athletic prowess. Recently, the internet fell completely head over heels for this grandma, who shows you’re never too old to go against the grain.


Puerto Rican singer Daddy Yankee recently challenged his fans to send in videos of them dancing to his newest hit song, “Dura.”Submissions have come in from all over the world and all kinds of people, but few stand out as much as this feisty granny.

Rachel is 90 years old, but was not about to back down from a challenge!


Going through the sultry steps, Rachel shows how to really get down. Her dance instructor Rina Elena Martinez encourages her, but Grandma needs no help – she’s owning the moves, if you ask us!

And Daddy Yankee agreed. In fact, he was so impressed that he posted the video on his Instagram account, saying: “She looks so beautiful dancing. It’s one of my favorite videos.â€


But actions, as they say, speak louder than words.

Watch Rachel get her groove on in the video below, and share to spread that you’re never too old to learn something new!
