A bond that lasts for a lifetime is too special. It can be a deep connection shared by married couples, friends, parents and their children or even pet owners and their pets. Having someone close to their heart gives true meaning to life. In a world where finding true love is getting difficult day after day, some older couples blaze a trail on how to keep up the spirit in a marriage or a relationship. Recently, one such inspiring couple showed us how to live life to the fullest with their random dance sequence in a mall's food court. The video posted by u/RevolutionaryTell668 went viral on Reddit with over 10K upvotes.

The video was recorded by a stranger who was one among the many audiences cheering for the couple's groove. The duo seemed to be in absolute sync as they aced their line dance moves to the Paul Russel song "Lil Boo Thang." Line dance generally involves a group of people arranged in a line dancing to the beat and repeating a set of moves. But in this sensational video, the line dance started with the elderly pair and its infectious spirit made some strangers join in too. Not caring what the world would think about this candid performance, the couple seemed to enjoy the beat throughout. The senior citizens proved that age is just a number and youth is just an attitude.

Most people showered the pair's lively performance with love. "You can tell that Grandpa knows how to command a room. What a stud!" commented u/jmalham12. "Imagine breaking the matrix just for a second and not caring what anyone thinks, this is beautiful," wrote u/StretchMotor8. "We definitely need more dancing in public places haha like imagine if that became a social norm. It would really help lift people's spirits," commented u/junjou_angel.


In fact, there's another great example of an older couple from Germany defying their age with a jaw-dropping performance. This couple has a huge history of setting the stage on fire with their amazing swing dance moves and still continues to awe the world with their viral videos. One of their audition videos became an overnight sensation on YouTube where the couple can be seen grooving with vim and vigor for the beats of Johan Blohm and The Refreshments' "Down The Road Apiece." This 2017 video is just one of the many boogie-woogie dance tournaments that they have participated in during their 40 years of dancing together. Dietmar and Nellia Ehrentruat are now avidly spreading boogie-woogie cheer by conducting dance classes and workshops in their town.  The fact that these older folks find happiness in the simplest of things paves the way to teach the younger generations what life is.
