They say old dogs can’t learn new tricks, but we found one grey-haired hero who is proving ‘them’ wrong.
Meet Arne Mayala. He’s 85-years-old, but this inexperienced tap dancer isn’t about to let something like age stand in the way of him achieving a lifelong goal.
Since he was a boy, Arne has always admired tap dancers and wanted to put on a pair of shoes himself. However, with the trials of life, tap dancing was never something Arne had the time for.
Now, at 85-years-old, Arne is putting the time into checking items off his bucket list. So, when he showed up to his local accountant’s office recently, he couldn’t help but notice the dance studio downstairs. Dance Tech Studios was located right below, as if it were a message from above.
“It definitely surprised me,” said Robin Lind, Dance Tech’s owner. Robin has greeted thousands of dancers in her 22 years in business, but never before an 85-year-old novice.
However, you are never to old to learn something new, and Arne is proving this true. If you believe that age only makes us better and if you live by the code that learning should never come to an end, the please SHARE Arne’s story with friends and family and remind them of the power of learning something new.
