"Work it grandma... work it!"

So, my school offers a free class to the student's grandparents on Tuesday afternoons.  Last week, we had a traditional Korean drummer come and teach them how to drum.  This week, we had a traditional Korean folk dancer come and lead dancing classes!  I happened to be downstairs when the class was happening, so I stopped in to see the action!  

There are no words to describe the sight I saw... but I will try!   There were 50+  women AND MEN, between the ages of 70 and 95, mimicking a Korean folk dancer; jumping up and down, flailing their bodies like birds, twirling around, and skipping arm in arm.  I only hope I can be 1/2 as active and excited about dance class as they are when I'm that age!  "Work it grandma!"
