After a video of an older German couple dancing the boogie-woogie went viral, they gained a huge number of fans all over the world.

Dietmar and Nellia were at a gala for the Horn dance school in Linz, Austria. When they got up to perform, they brought the house down.

The Horn dance school has been around for 111 years and is still known as one of the best dance schools in Europe. It teaches beginners how to dance many different styles, such as the Viennese Waltz, Slow Waltz, Foxtrot, Boogie, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, and Samba. Students can choose between short courses that only last a few hours or longer courses that meet for 12 evenings.

Dietmar and Nellia Ehrentraut have been married for almost 50 years, and they have been dancing professionally for over 30 years. They have won many dance competitions together, including the Austrian and German national dance championships. Their specialties are the Lindy Hop and the Jitterbug, which are dances from the 1940s and 1950s.

In the video below, Dietmar and Nellia dance to the song “Down the Road Apiece” by Johan Blohm & The Refreshments in a boogie-woogie style. The performance by the couple does not let anyone down!

People at the gala were shocked to see the older couple perform with the energy of teenagers. Everyone there could see why these two people have won so many dance contests.
