Though there were a few bumps on the road, it is evident that the pair thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Grandparents are the most adorable creatures in the entire world. They build a treasure trove of happy memories for their grandchildren and make sure that every moment spent with them is precious for their offsprings' babies. This is evidet in a video shared by @grandadjoe1933 in which he is seen adorably teaching his granddaughter how to dance the waltz. He wanted to show his granddaughter how they used to tackle the dance floor back in his days. Both of them are seen smiling through the entire dance. Though there were a few bumps on the road, it is evident that the pair thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
The song playing in the background of the beautiful dance was "Be More" by Stephen Sanchez. The pair start slow with the granddaughter following Joe's lead. She initially moves slowly and steadily, watching her steps. It is clear from Joe's moves that he was quite the lady's man in his days. Even though the waltz seems to be hard for the young woman, both of them have an infectious joy on their face at being able to enjoy this moment with each other.
The grandfather explained his intention with teaching his granddaughter the danceform in a text overlay that read, "I wanted to show her how we used to dance back in the 1950s." Joe explained how it was not all smooth, as his student made a lot of mistakes and kept stepping on his toes. But, ultimately, he was happy that she enjoyed the whole experience with him. The heartwarming video has gained over 70k views and 3k likes.

This video will surely make many people stand up and run straight to their grandparents for some quality time and according to Christina Pay, Utah State University Extension Assistant Professor, people should definitely take that step. She shared in her paper how a strong relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is mutually beneficial. The former enhances the life quality of their grandchildren by providing them with acceptance, patience, love, stability, wisdom, fun and support. On the other hand, grandparents, by spending time with their grandchildren, boost their brain function, fight off depression and live a longer life, according to several studies. Hence, both parties need to foster a bond with each other.
