It wasn't quite "Dancing With the Stars," but 150 senior adults from around York County showed off their best moves Tuesday in downtown Rock Hill.
The dance floor at the second annual "senior prom" stayed quiet until the deejay cued up "The Electric Slide." That's when the floor got busy.
Some watched from the balcony, wondering what happened to the popular moves they used to know. The event was put on by the York County Council on Aging.
"That's not dancing like it used to be," said 79-year-old Pauline Long of York. "They used to have two-step and all that, square dancing. They're just out there shakin.'"
Never miss a local story.
If high style is what the women were after, Frank Jones could've had his pick of partners. At 71, Jones sported a camel-colored suit, a red corsage and brown leather shoes straight out of the 1970s.
But Jones hung back, playing it cool as he took in the action from a safe distance.
"Not tonight," he said. "I ain't in that mood. ... I've got emphysema, and I didn't want to get out there and fall out."
About that time, an encore of "The Electric Slide" began, and a flock of seniors returned to the dance floor for a little more shaking.
