Most of us love to dance from time to time, but this couldn’t be truer for 102-year-old Alice Barker (yes 102!) who was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1930s and 40s.
During her lifetime she was lucky enough to dance with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, as well as dancing in numerous movies, commercials, and TV shows.
But one thing about her amazing story is that she has never seen footage of herself dancing, that is until now!
After years of searching, some friends of Alice finally found three ‘soundies’ which she appeared in and she was finally able to see herself in motion for the first time in her life.
When asked how she felt watching them back Alice said “It makes me want to get up out of this bed and do it all over again”
Take a look at the amazing and heartwarming video below.
