Elderly Couple Shuffles Onto Dance Floor & Blows Crowd Away With Epic Moves.

You know what they say, your 60’s are the new 20’s. Okay, no one is actually saying that, but they should start because more and more retirees are proving that age is nothing but a number. A cliche people actually do say.

64-year-old Nellia Ehrentraut and her 70-year-old husband, Dietmar haven’t let age get in the way of their favorite hobby – dancing! In fact, the two were caught on video doing a jive that even 20-something’s would have a hard time doing.


In a video shared across social media platforms, the pair are introduced to a crowd of people and shuffle to the dance floor. Upon first look, you may expect a cute little dance with minimal movement, but within seconds of their performance, Dietmar is spinning Nellia around so much that even those just watching get dizzy!


As the video goes on, Nellia does more than just spin, she dips, twirls, and even slides along the floor as Dietmar holds her (sometimes with only one hand!). Their skills are impressive for anyone – at any age!


The married couple say they’ve been dancing together for more than 30 years, and they clearly don’t plan to let age get in the way of that. In fact, the talented duo have competed in tournaments and have won multiple awards over the years for their amazing moves.

Their talent hasn’t gone unnoticed, either, because they’ve now gained viral internet fame. The video of them dancing has gained over 62 million views since it was originally posted. People across the globe love the sweet couple and are envious of their skills!


We have a feeling this won’t be the last we see of this epic couple!
