When 93-year-old Mathilda Klein entered the dance floor with her younger partner Danny Maloney, everyone in the audience clapped politely.
It was rather obvious what direction their thoughts took: "Here is an elderly woman who used to be a dancer but now needs a walker to move. She deserves support even though it's the partner who will be doing all the dancing around her." Imagine their surprise when Mathilda dropped the walker and showed everyone that she still had it!
You would never be able to tell this amazing woman's age from the way she moves. She's lighter on her feet than many girls in their twenties! In fact, as Mathilda and Danny slide across the floor to the tune of "Dancing in the Rain", you find yourself forgetting all about the age, instead just enjoying the sight of two talented dancers.
It's so amazing how some people's entire existence proves that age is truly just a number!
