89-year-old Ballerina Proves Age Is Just a Number

December 13, 2015

89-year-old Doris Lee Davis Pritchett is currently taking the internet by storm—and warming all dance-loving hearts while she’s at it. This viral video, posted by her daughter, Beth Pritchett Kendrick, on Facebook, shows Pritchett dancing at a makeshift ballet barre while recovering in a rehabilitation facility. A plié and a tendu show off her elegant technique, still present after all these years.

Pritchett was a dancer for the USO (United Service Organizations) in the 1940s, and proves one thing for sure: Grace never fades.

Awwwwww. (Screenshot via Facebook)
