A hip hop crew of senior citizens defies the odds, and its members push their bodies to the absolute limits of old age as they make their way to Las Vegas to compete in the World Hip Hop Dance Championships, hip-hopping their way into the hearts and minds of thousands and reminding us all that age ain’t nothing but a number.HI
And while these senior citizens may each be almost a century young, for Kara (94), Maynie (95), and Terri (93), the journey to Las Vegas and the World Hip Hop Dance Championships is just the beginning of a life’s journey.
And along with 27 other nonagenarians, they defy the odds and hip-hop their way into the hearts and minds of thousands of young fans from around the world.
Led by their exuberant manager Billie Jordan, they throw away their wheelchairs and walking sticks, pushing their bodies and artificial joints to the limits. “You’re all going… even if it’s in an urn,” she tells them.
But it’s not so easy when you don’t really like the music and all you can do is worry about how to get your shoes on. But with the help of Billie, who has never danced, and young hip hoppers from Street Dance New Zealand, they begin to believe. Along the way, this oldest-ever hip hop crew reminds us that life is for living.
