An 82-year-old man from Colorado has left young internet users stunned with his cool dance moves. Defying stereotypes surrounding age, the man danced his heart out at a wedding and his spirited performance has taken the internet by storm.
In a video shared by Instagram user and event host Neegam Patel, the man clad in black and white coat and suit is seen dancing enthusiastically. He steals the show with his exuberant performance and an elderly woman is also seen making gentle moves beside him. Patel comes in front of the camera, holds the man and praises the man. He is heard saying, “I love this guy, greatest dancer in the world, golden buzzer, final round.” As he shakes his leg, other young people are also seen enjoying in the background.
