When Mathilda Klein walked onto the dance floor holding a walker, she could’ve easily fooled anyone in the crowd. But this 94-year-old dancer quickly proved that she didn’t need anything to help her get around. That walker was clearly just a prop!
Along with her much younger dance partner Danny Maloney, Klein stunned the crowd with some swift dance moves. Donning a fringed white dress, the Florida native glided down the dance floor and even hopped around making it very easy to forget her age.
While it’s impressive to watch anyone break it down on the dance floor, it’s even more special when they are elderly. Whether it’s a senior busting a move on the street, or making the crowd roar with some break dancing, it’s fascinating to watch them prove that age is nothing but a number.
“This is what I do,” Klein told the United States Amateur Roller Skating Association in an old interview. “It keeps me alive.”
Maloney, who had been dancing with Klein for years prior to this competition, is amazed by how she moves. (As am I!)
“She’s an inspiration to me every time I dance with her,” he said.
