Default Ginger Rogers at 92

You are not going to believe this if you watch it. Ginger Rogers is 92 and her dance partner is 29. It's about 4.5 minutes long and was evidently taped somewhere either in Spain or Latin America. You'll probably stand up and cheer along with the audience at the end!

Simply remarkable!!!

Sadly, if you check snopes.com on that one you will learn that it is not Ginger Rogers, who passed away in 1995 at the age of 83. It is a 75 year old lady in Spain, and she is still a remarkable dancer.

I didn't look at the video but my first thought was: "Isn't she dead and didn't she die long before 98."

Take care,
Mike

You all are right of course, I thought Ginger Rogers was dead too and should have checked but like I guess a million others, I fell for it.

Nevertheless I agree it was a tremendous video and an inspiration to we of the older set.

I love to watch the old Astaire / Rogers movies and do so whenever I can.
Ginger supposedly once said that she had to do everything Astaire did except she had to do it backwards !!
Even though this wasn't Ginger, I have to take my hat off to the lady who was doing the dancing--she was indeed a pleasure to watch, especially at her age!
Thanks Todd !

Please get the quote right. What Ginger Rogers really pointed out is that she did everything that Fred Astaire did, except backward and in high heels.

Norm.
