Walker-pushing Granny Upstages Street Performer: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

This was a beautiful moment captured on the streets of Brighton with performer Pablo (Disco Bunny) Woodward and a group of spontaneous joyful dancers including the very special old lady in the pink coat - what a true inspiration. A moment of pure joy expressed through dancing and music. I love this video and i hope you do to.

YouTube video description


An elderly woman with a walker upstaged a street performer who was dancing to "Twist and Shout" in the streets of Brighton.

This video vividly and beautifully illustrates the maxim that youth is a state of mind. No drab frumpy coat for this elderly soul, she was rocking a hot pink jacket -- that`s evidence of her vitality right there.

When the old lady heard the rock and roll classic she set her walker aside, and busted a move to the delight of the crowd. The senior citizen`s energy was infectious, a growing crowd soon gathered around her and started to boogie.

This is one of those urban happenings that`s an antidote to the malaise that permeates all large cities.

Go granny Go! Get your dance on!
