The granny in the video stepped up in front of the band of musicians. At first, everyone was wondering what she was up to. “Was she going to talk to someone on the band? Did she remember something and want to share with the audience? Don’t tell me she has got good dance steps to show us.” All these and more must-have streamed through the audience mind as they watched her mount up the stage. But once they began to play a tune, all doubt was cleared.

She began with shoulder movement and then her legs and hip swung into actions in no time. She soon turned it into an epic salsa dance routine! The old grandma obviously got no stiff bones. She still got the moves. She shook her hips so well that the crowd couldn’t help but screamed. She stole the show with her salsa dance steps. The band played their instruments in the background, she danced, and the crowd cheered. The mix is beautiful to behold.
