Elderly Dancers Prove They’ve Still Got It With Classy Swing Routine.

Science tells us that people who stay active in their golden years live longer, happier lives. That has certainly been the case for Nellia and Dietmar Ehrentraut of Durmersheim, Germany.

The lovebirds were married in 1970 and recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Dietmar is 72 and Nellia is 66, but they move like people half their age! The two of them have been a fixture on the dance festival circuit for decades. They’ve always impressed audiences with their fancy footwork and fun-loving routines, and they’ve only gotten better with time. 


In a video taken at the 2019 Rock That Swing Festival in Berlin, Germany, we see Nellia and Dietmar prove that we’re only as old as we feel. They put on a jaw-dropping dance number to “Never Stop Jiving,” and quite frankly we’re in love!

Watch the Ehrentrauts do what they do best in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
