Wow! Phoenix seniors do Gangnam-Style

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Gangnam Style is all over TV, the internet, and the dance floor. But wait until you see who's learning it now. You'll be pretty impressed.

It's the most popular dance in the country and the world, and never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed a 78-year-old would be teaching me how to do Gangnam Style.

I guess you could call Betsy one hip granny.

"It was kind of hard especially when you have to do two things at once, tap tap and you have to twirl your arms… it is fun I love it," says Betsy Schultz.

It all started a few weeks ago when a couple ladies who live at the Terraces Retirement Community in Phoenix asked to learn the dance in their boot camp class.

"They were telling me it's this horse dance they saw on TV and said it was all over the internet, and I was like ‘what are you talking about?'" says Aneil Koerper.

If you've ever done it you know, it's quite a workout -- but it's not stopping these determined dancers. The youngest here in class is 78, the oldest is 92.

"I think it's awesome because it really shows they still want to be hip, they still want to be young."

So do they plan on performing at any holiday shows?

"No, unless they see us on TV and think we should be out for hire!" says Schultz.

I'll hire them -- they are my new inspiration to get up and move.

Over the weekend Gangnam Style became the most watched YouTube video ever with 805 million views.
