83-year-old man dances man at Dutch electronic dance festival

83-year-old man dances man at Dutch electronic dance festival

This 83-year-old man dances like he isn’t a day older than 30 in footage from an electronic dance festival in Holland.

A video has emerged of an 83-year-old man dancing energetically to music at an electronic dance festival in the Netherlands.

In the footage, captured by a bystander at Edit Festival in Haarlem, Johan de Vries can be seen dancing in front of crowds of young revellers.

Known locally as the ‘Grandfather of House’, Johan has been showcasing his dance skills at festivals for several years and, according to local news reports, used to be a ballroom dancer.

“No wonder Holland is the number one country when it comes to electronic dance-music,” the filmer later wrote online.

“Dance is in the genes of the Dutch. At Edit Festival in Haarlem, where international DJ’s like Sasha, Danny Howels and the guys from Slam performed, this 83-year old man knew the moves.

“Oh Yeah! Upon asking what he thought of the festival he said: ‘It’s still early. I am waiting for the DJ’s who play harder music”.
