These ladies are actually awesome! Amazing and so much fun. Any one who can watch these and not crack a smile has something wrong with them. They make me lol every time I watch them but would be better if they did do some new songs maybe a bit of rock ?
«The Dancing Grannies» went shopping in Stafford and decided to get up and do their thing for the Christmas lights switch on.
If you see a group of elderly women dancing like women half their age, you’re going to stop and watch.
A group of women has taken the U.K. by storm through their seemingly impromptu dance battles on street corners and farmers’ markets. Complete with canes and curlers still in their hair, the “grannies” suddenly become the baddest dance troupe in the city.
Their skirts are flower-printed and run nearly to their ankles, but they don’t let that get in the way of their jumpin’ and jivin’. The comically large-framed glasses and booties to match their skirts add to the ensemble, and it’s no doubt that most people get quite a kick out of watching them strut their stuff.
But alas, they’re not really “grannies.” In fact, all four of the women are between 33 and 51, and are all part of the Fizzog Productions’ dance group. Sue Hawkins, 42, Jackie Fellows, 51, Deb Nicholls, 42, and Emma Rollason, 33, make up the fleet-footed quartet. After one of their first videos went viral across social media, the “Dancing Grannies” have become something of a local icon.
What’s truly unbelievable is the idea that a group of women who appear eligible for Social Security are busting out moves to rival all comers.
Of course, the women who are actually performing as the “grannies” aren’t ones themselves, but the crowds at their performances seem to enjoy it just the same.
The four women have been dancing together for 14 years since meeting in college, where they all studied musical theatre.
