When the cold winter leaves and the cherry blossoms of spring bloom in Japan, the landscape is stunning and can lighten our spirits and occasionally encourage us to dance like no one else is watching.
This is the tweet in which @yoshitakupoppop and his mom performed while enjoying the cherry blossoms in the park.
The video they made quickly went viral, not just for their impressive dance moves in the beautiful spring setting but also because of the sweet caption that reads:
I danced under a beautiful cherry tree with my mother
I wouldn’t be happy now if you didn’t invite me to dance
thanks so much.
Sixty-eight years old this year and still so cool!
After watching the video, it isn’t easy to believe that this mom with all those fantastic moves is only at 68. Take a look at the video below, and be ready for a smile that will bring a smile to your face!
お母様と2人で綺麗な桜の木の下で踊りました— よしたく (@yoshitakupoppop) April 2, 2022
How sweet was that? It’s the perfect show to remove the last glimmer of frost off our winter-soaked hearts.
According to @yoshitakupoppop’s Twitter account, his mom was an instructor in jazz as a child, but this is her first experience dancing this way. She’s learned many things from her son, and despite the age gap, dance has given the two a newfound happiness and brings even more joy and laughter to their already close bond.
It’s a beautiful reminder that you’re never too old to express your dance moves, and from the joy on their faces, this is only the beginning of a beautiful dancing partnership. We’re eager to find out where the graceful dance moves will take them next!
