Description

A group of 27 sassy women ranging in age from 66 to 94 years young sets out to prove that you can be a hip hop dancer, even after you’ve had hip replacement surgery. Taking off from their native New Zealand for the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in Las Vegas, they’re prepared to compete against dance crews whose members are the same age as their great-grandchildren. It’s not easy when there’s only sixty dollars in the bank, you don’t really like the music, and you’re worried about how to get your socks on, but with the help of “I’ve never danced in my life” Billie and young hip hoppers from Street Dance New Zealand, they begin to believe. Charming, inspiring, life-affirming, and very funny, this refreshing doc will make your heart soar. Just try not to cry when one member says, “I want to die dancing.” We dare you.
