While old age is associated with various limitations and restrictions, some people still manage to live their life to the fullest even in their twilight years. A video of one such woman has gone viral lightening up the mood of many on the Internet.
Shared on Twitter, the video is of a then 96-year-old woman, named Shirley Goodman, who is seen dancing her heart out on Bruno Mars’ Locked Out of Heaven song at an event. In the clip, Ms Goodman shakes leg with other jubilant guests and pulls off some impressive moves. She becomes the centre of attraction as the attendees start to follow her dance steps.
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough …… like Shirley Goodman,” the caption read.

For this one, the woman not only outshined others with her dance but was also the “best dressed”.
What a marvellous lady! She dances better than lots of the younger ones and is certainly better dressed! ❤️

This video of Ms Goodman first went viral back in 2019 when it was shared by her grandchildren on social media. The nonagenarian was 96 years old back then and was dubbed the “Dancing Nana” for her graceful moves.
The clip is from her great-nephew’s wedding.
