Sarah”Paddy”Jones won the World Record for being the oldest female acrobatic salsa dancer on the 4th March 2010. Sarah”Paddy”Jones was born in Stourbridge England on the 1st of July 1935. Sarah was 75 when she won the record.
When Sarah married, she moved to Spain, and after the death of her Husband in March 2003 she decided to take Salsa classes, and with her dance partner Nicolas Espinosa (40 years younger) they entered the Spanish Talent show Tu Si Que Vales they reached the final 8 out of 20 acts, on the 2nd of December 2009.
The couple also competed in Bailando 2010 in Argentina; they made it to round 11.
The 1st video below is Sarah and Nicolas dancing, the start is slow but stay with it as they do dance the Salsa.
The 2nd video is an interview with Sarah”Paddy”Jones.
There is a very nice article about Sarah in the Express and Star, the article was written in November 2010.
I had to replace the original video I had on here as it was blocked in the US. If this one is also blocked in your country, please let me know.
