Dance every day forever

I love this video. It’s a simple portrait of a 95-year old ballet teacher, Maia Helles. She doesn’t teach or dance ballet per se in this clip, but you can see the dancer in her in the way she moves, in the way she does her morning exercises. Here’s hoping that we’re all so limber, articulate, and lovely when we’re 95!

I found this powerful because you can see the positive impression that dance has made on this woman’s life, again confirming that dance is for all people, at every age.
