Also, let's make this go viral and show the world what 88 looks like!

Here are some great comments from viewers on Facebook:

"Seriously, this is almost bringin tears to my eyes, it's such a wonderful thing to witness, even on video. Jean's just amazing, having a great chemistry with Marcus there. 30, 40, 50 years ... and feeling old? Think again! Or even better: dance again! :) Thank you for sharing this video!!"

"Feeling old? Watch the amazing Jean Veloz with Marcus Koch. This is what 88 looks like when you never stop dancing. "

"This is inspirational - Jean Veloz, who's 88, and one of the original dancers in Groovie Movie. I'd say she's still got it - in spades!"

"Fantastic. I don't know whether I'm crying because she can still do what she does or that a room full of young people are showing their love and respect in such a supportive way."


For those of you who love the song... it is The Mills Brothers singing "Down Down Down" with Count Basie!
