Henry, my future dancing partner
One of my blogging friends, Susan from Coming East, posted this video clip of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire dancing in the movie Swing Time. She also posted two other dancing videos but this one was Henry’s favorite.
I showed it to Henry and he loved it. He requests to watch it every time we walk past the computer, or when he is sad or tired. When he watches it and the clip finishes he says “See it again, please!” or “NOT WORKING!!!” depending on his mood.
I love her dress the way it flows. I love her strong thin legs and how much fun the two of them look like they are having. It makes me happy! When I am feeling kind of sad I will come back to this and watch the dancing!
Sometimes I watch it with Henry and then we look at the other suggestions YouTube has on the right side of the screen. That is when I found this amazing clip on YouTube!
The clip claims it is Ginger Rogers dancing at 92 years old with her 29-year-old great-grandson. I was curious to see how old she lived to be and found out on Wikipedia that Rogers lived to be 83 years old. If you read the comments under this clip you will see someone mention that this is not Ginger Rogers, but a 73-year-old woman.
Now I don’t really care who this lady is! I am still highly impressed that a 73-year-old body can move like this! I should start dancing!
Since I found this new love of Henry’s I have been getting my hopes up that I may have a dancing partner soon!
