Frankie Manning: "Dancing keeps you young"

Dancing keeps you young, says lindy hop legend Frankie Manning in this video clip from when he was 81 years young. Just look at him dancing, that's what I want to do as well when I'm 81. Now, more than ten years later Frankie is still going strong, so follow Frankie's advice:

"Anybody out there who is not dancing should start."

On Saturday May 26th Frankie celebrates his 93rd(!) birthday and a great gift would be to make his new autobiography "Frankie Manning: Ambassador of Lindy Hop" a best seller at Buy your copy of the book on May 26th. Join the campaign.

Wow. 93 years and still young. Dancing and laughing a lot seems to be the way to stay young.

Can anyone tell me who the woman that Frankie is dancing with is?

Does dancing keep you young, just like Frankie Manning says? Tell me.
