Their infectious dance routine has been watched on Facebook by over 62 million people and has been shared over 1 million times. That’s pretty impressive going for any professional dancers, never mind an adorable old couple who do it for fun.

The married couple says they have been dancing for over 30 years and have no intentions of stopping. They have won many awards for their dances, predominately in the style of the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s.

Can we bring back dance halls? I would love to spend my Friday nights dancing the night away and learning the old dance styles that our grandparents enjoyed. It seems like such a lost art that is kept alive by the older generations. We need to keep it going!
