Pops Busts Some Moves! #FridayFeeling

You will have read about me many times over, writing about my darling of a dad, my Pops.

He is a true inspiration to me and just never stops!

This past weekend, he was helping the Sikh Union Club where he teaches Yoga, at a Vaisakhi fair.

He heard a Dhol (Punjabi drum) from afar, and couldn’t resist!  I edited the video he sent because the end was a little advertorial about the stall he ended up at, and in Punjabi, so not understandable for most of you!

What you do see, is my nearly 72-year-old Pops busting some moves!

He did say in a little interview after his ‘performance’ that the sound of the drums got his shoulders moving, and then he just had to follow the beat and ended up improvising a little routine!

It tends to run in our family, hearing music and then dancing and/or singing!

I love my dear Pops, and his energy for life!

He says that the music makes him feel full of life, and he has to dance, and he dances from the heart. Then he watches videos and cringes at the old man who is on the screen.

Can I hear it for my super-cool Pops, who not only rocked the moves, but the sunglasses too!

      My Pops is a dancing machine! He’s danced professionally since he was a young adult, and been in Bhangra teams, until he got married and settled down. Then every time he hears music, he’ll dance. It doesn’t matter what the tune, he’ll spice it up with his bhangra magic and moves of the head and hips!

    Aww, my 89 year old dad loves to dance too. When I visited him this April he waltzed we around his living room. I couldn’t believe how well he danced for his age. It must be all the golf and dancing that has kept him so fit for so long! There is nothing quite like a zest for life. Your dancing dad sounds so sweet. X

    He nailed it. And blow the old man nonsense. That 22 year old is merely waiting to pop out of the husk like a beautifully ripened fruit.
