It’s always encouraging to see old people who are still vigorous.
That’s because people can feel some reassurance that when they reach that age, it’s still possible to enjoy life and be healthy.
But despite that, you normally wouldn’t expect seniors to move and act like much younger people.
So imagine the surprise of onlookers in New Street, Birmingham, the United Kingdom when they witnessed a group of “grannies” performing some high energy dance moves.Some of them must have doubted if these were grandmothers at all.
And, in a sense, they were right. The footage was taken on April 2, 2016, and featured a dance group called the “Fizzogs Dancing Grannies,” or “The Fizzogs” for short.
In the meantime, you can just sit back and enjoy how these “grannies” make their dance moves here:
The dance that they’re doing in the video is called the Bhangra dance. It’s a folk dance from Punjab, India that’s very popular.
The women dancing in the video are Deb Nicholls, Susan Hawkins, and Jacky Fellows. While they are “only” in their 40s and 50s, they’re no spring chickens either so it makes their dance moves no less impressive.
If anything, it just shows you that dancing is an activity that can be a fun exercise at any age.
Exercise can also make you look younger as it keeps your muscles toned and can keep your skin from sagging. Since you can adjust your dance to incorporate only low-impact movements, it’s a great way to keep exercising well into old age.
