DENTON, TX (KTVT) – When a high school senior needed someone to fill in at her high school's annual mother-daughter dance, the first person she looked to was her 85-year-old great-grandmother.
If it looked like she had been dancing all her life it was because she had.
Ruth Vogel had been dancing since she was a little girl and was still dancing professionally after giving birth to six children. She remained in the business until she was 36 years old.
She is still spry because she makes time for stretching five days a week.
"I will have to say I'm a ham at heart, and I enjoyed every bit of it," Vogel said of dancing with her granddaughter, Tori Olson.
Olson's mother had been battling a longterm illness before she died several years ago.
It was a good thing she had a grandma who was willing and able to kick up her heels and even do splits.
"My mother passed away when I was 12," Olson said. "She got sick, probably when I was 1 or 2."
She gave her grandmother rave reviews. Judging by the reaction of the audience, it wasn't like she really had a choice.
