Dance Like Nobody's Watching and the Whole World Will

Nellia Ehrentraut, 64, and husband Dietmar, 70, are drawing accolades online after a YouTube video showed them energetically dancing to Johan Blohm & The Refreshments. The video was filmed at an event called the Boogie Woogie Veterans Tournament in Landshut, Germany. The couple, who married in 1070, said they have been dancing together for more than 30 years, and have won numerous awards for dancing in styles from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. "We still have a lot of fun," the couple told ABC News.

That's the news of the day and the week and we are out of here for a beautiful Friday afternoon. Hope you have one too. Come back when you can. We'll be here all week month year decade.

Married in 1070 huh. They've been married even longer than I and the Mrs. have.

Look, obviously it's a typo, sb 1870.

1870 huh. That's still longer than me and the Mrs., I think. I'll have to ask her when she gets back from the hula hoop contest.

Pretty fancy footwork,no matter what century they're from. The part where they got too close to the middle judge and made him jump was funny. And they won the contest,despite that!

Oh, please don't pick on the typos - it is very hard to be perfect.

Instead marvel at the absolute joy this video.
Even the judge, tapping his foot and smiling while watching, was being entranced by this beauty of motion.
