Recently, I was on Facebook and I stumbled across a video showing a group of older individuals dancing to hip-hop music. Now these people were 90-years old or more and were moving along to dated music.
Meet Hip Op-eration, the world's oldest dance group (they are in the Guinness World Record Book too).
The group consists of 22 senior citizens aged 68 to 96 years old who live off the East coast of New Zealand. The average age for this group is 80 and 13 members are in their 80's and 90's. They've performed at the World Hip-Hop Championship in Las Vegas in 2013, the New Zealand National Hip Hop Championships twice in 2013 and 2014 and in Taipei Arena, Taiwan to an audience of 15,00 in 2014.
On their website it says that they aim to:
"Use hip hop dance as a vehicle to not only form stronger connections with young people but to also promote attitudinal change in our society towards aged persons."
Now who doesn't think that is awesome?!?
They even have a move about the group and their travels.
Can't lie, this is pretty interesting and it shows you that no matter how old you are, you can still enjoy life, dance and have fun!
