Meet some truly inspirational women, Billie Jordan founded the Hip Hop Operation based on Waiheke Island in 2012. The Mega Crew hip hop dance troupe consists of 22 senior citizens aged 68 to 95 years old. After competing at the Hip Hop Championships in Vegas in 2013 they are in the Guinness book of records as the oldest dance group in the world. Showing that age truly is just a number, they are examples of how when you coming together as a team you can achieve amazing things http://www.hipop-eration.com

  1. And to think that some people think their lives are over when by the time they’re in their forties! This is really inspirational. It shows us that we can really work towards anything no matter what stands in our way!

    Hip hop in particular to me have always seemed intimidating. Yet I am not even near half their age. This video was very encouraging. Also it reminds us we should try to fulfill our bucket list.

    It’ll be seriously amazing if they manage to pull it off perfectly on stage. Even if they manage to hit 70% of the choreography, it’s already great to me considering their age and how limited their movements are.
    Great inspirational video. Shows that you can always find joy in your life no matter what level you’re at.

    This is so amazing. Some of these people are 70 years older than me and dance better than I EVER will. It’s also really great because as people get older, they long for company and this must give them such a great sense of purpose.

    You can still dance and move no matter how old you are. I know someone who is 100 years old and she was still moving to the beat at a local dance competition a couple years back. I bet she is still moving those hips to this day! It is crazy how much energy these people still have after all those years though!

    What an amazing story. I enjoyed listening to the seniors telling their stories, and Billie sharing her background on why she started this. It really goes to show that age is just a number, because those seniors are definitely young at heart. I’m going to have to see if I can find a video of one of their performances!

    I really enjoyed the seniors. I really love them doing the moon walk. The nicknames were so much fun. I have set a goal for myself to never stop dancing. This video should inspire everyone to be active, and realize that as long as they are alive they can start another chapter.
