60 Year Old Teacher Shows Her Students How to Dance

Algaecal / June 1, 2015

I love Ellen Degeneres.

She’s real.

She’s funny.

AND she knows how to dance.

Which brings me to this video I wanted to share with you. You may have seen it if you watch Ellen because she shared it recently. And since then, it has gone viral.

Shirley Clement is a 60 year old dance teacher who retired in style (and with major rhythm) to the hit, “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars.

Don’t you want to get up and dance after that? I do!

Loved the video because it is very inspiring. I am 62 and still dance, walk a lot, do pilates, and weight baring exercises. I love your newsletters and just started taking Algea Cal Plus. I know our bodies are all different, but I hope it works for me. Thanks for the fun video.

Loved the video. I love to dance and square danced for years as well as ballroom dancing until I brought my hip playing pickleball.when I was 72 years old.


So glad you enjoyed the video, Adele! It’s a good one 🙂

Good for her, I could have done most of that when I was 60, but not now I’m 70, been ill and don’t have any energy at the moment. I’m also not allowed to do head stands even if I could, due to stable glaucoma. I can’t skip around either since I fractured my foot as I can’t bend it properly and it aches just walking, making me limp at times. I can’t believe how inhibiting it is. I just wish I could do the things I did 10-15 years ago.


Hi Joan,
Can definitely understand the frustration. We do have some great exercise posts on the blog for all levels (and limitations). I’ve pulled a few for you here:
