Bill Jones may be 72-years-old but he didn’t let age stop him from joining his 10-year-old granddaughter, Maeve Jones, on stage last month to perform a tap dance routine that could have been mistaken for something out of “Dancing with the Stars.”

The Massachusetts grandfather comes from a long line of dancers. His grandmother danced, his father danced and he danced professionally with a group that performed with the likes of Johnny Mathis and Barbra Streisand back in the day, 7 News Boston reported.

When Mauve Jones asked him to do a tap dance routine for her dance school's annual recital, he obliged, and even pulled out a cartwheel.

“I decided to do a cartwheel again,” he said. “I hadn’t done them in a while. I used to do a bunch of other trucks, but that’s the last trick I have left.”

The pair only practiced their routine about six times and Mauve Jones told Inside Edition she was nervous, but they won the crowd over with their dance.

A video clip posted by Mauve Jones’ mother, Jaime Jones, shows the tap dancing pair flawlessly execute their moves to cheers from the crowd.

After the recital, Mauve Jones said she was happy and proud to dance with her grandfather.

“He doesn't seem old when he dances,” she told Inside Edition.

“They’re probably aren’t too many tap-dancing grandfathers around,” Bill Jones added, according to 7 News Boston. “I was very proud to do it, and I was surprised at the response.”

Bill Jones said he hoped to share another dance with his granddaughter one day.
