Dancing is such a beautiful thing to do as it perfectly blends athleticism with creativity. It’s a form of a language that transcends boundaries with people of all cultures and ages enjoying this wonderful activity. However, as we grow older, our bodies have a tendency to slow down and we can’t always do all the things we once enjoyed doing while we were younger. It’s a very unfortunate and sad reality. But Mathilda Klein, a 94-year-old woman, would most definitely disagree with that statement in a very big way.
You see, Mathilda is definitely not your ordinary 94-year-old lady. Mathilda marches to the beat of her own drum and she defies expectations. Yup, Mathilda is one cool cat and you’re about to see exactly why.
In the video you are about to watch, you will see Mathilda make her way onto the dance floor for a dance competition. She slowly strolls in using her walker along with her much younger dancing companion, Danny Maloney. Once she finally gets to her starting position, her dancing partner dances around her and her walker. Here is when you begin to think that Danny is the star of the performance and Mathilda is really just supporting the act. But, things quickly take a turn and soon enough, we’re all proved wrong.
As Danny’s opening act comes to an end, he decides to first take her jacket off, revealing a beautiful white dress. Then, he takes her walker away and Mathilda is left to stand all by herself. She seems hesitant to take a step without her walker; it’s almost like she is going to ask for it back as soon as Danny comes. But, instead, what happens next is simply incredible.
Danny scoops Mathilda in his arms and off the two go, putting on a marvelous performance. I don’t want to give away too much of the routine in a lengthy description, but I will say that this woman is truly an inspiration to us all!
