Not everyone has the ability to “dance like no one’s watching.” Yet, it’s certainly inspirational to watch someone that’s brave enough to do so.
When a crowd formed to watch a street performer in Brussels, Belgium, they ended up getting more than a free concert. It was all thanks to an elderly woman who never lost her spirit.
A beatboxing musician named Power Beat set up his speaker in the middle of a crowded area – ready to put on a show for the public.
People stopped curiously as he made his last preparations. But while most strangers stood in the distance – there was one woman upfront who seemed most eager to enjoy some entertainment.
The “granny” was wearing a floral dress, trenchcoat, and had her poodle’s leash in hand. While she was likely out for a walk, apparently she had worn her dancing shoes for the stroll as well.
She flapped her arms to the sounds of Power Beat as he got ready to start. However, it was when the musician pulled out his harmonica to work his magic on the microphone that the real fun began.
Granny was ready to dance.
She bopped her head to the beat and threw in some Vogue style moves. Next, she treated everyone to a little jig, hopping on the bricks with her hands on her hips.
The dog stood there patiently while his owner danced the day away. Something tells me it’s not the first time he’s witnessed such an event.
Power Beat gets a little closer to the woman who’s obviously a big fan of his music style. Together, the two entertain the crowd that seems to be loving the show too (how could you not?).
Some people stop doing the things they love when they get older, or sadly, sometimes the body just doesn’t work the way it use to. This granny, however, never lost her ability to bust a move.
She continues her head rolls, arm flaps, hip shakes, and all the other sweet moves she throws in. Can we get a bucket of water, because this lady’s on fire!
Just when you think granny’s got to be getting a little sleepy from her workout, she’s actually got more skills up her sleeve. She drops her dog’s leash, then several moments later – gets down on all fours to dance.
If people didn’t have their cameras out to record the scene some might not believe it. But fortunately they did, and yes, the elderly woman whipped her head around like she was at a hairband concert.
Power Beat bent down closer to the woman’s level for the end of the song. Together they put on a little grand finale for everyone.
The dozens and dozens of strangers cheered in response to the performance. It’s definitely not one you see every day – although it would be the best form of medicine if you did.
Afterward, the woman gets up and waves goodbye to Power Beat. She then casually walks away towards the crowd with her dog, as if nothing happened.
This granny’s ability to “dance like no one’s watching” in a crowd is truly inspirational. The video of their street act has even been watched on YouTube more than 11 million times.
It’s a scene that’s sure to brighten your day. You can enjoy it below!
