I'm hugely grateful to have tango in my life. If I make it to 90, in the year 2050, I will have been dancing tango for 47 years - over half of my life. Perhaps my walk will not suck by then, and maybe I will have advanced beyond beginner, and maybe even deserve to be called a Milonguero.
Here's an award winning short documentary (21 mins) about two Broadway dancers, both 90 years young, who still dance twice a week in a rented studio in New York City.

After celebrated careers, legendary dancers Marge Champion and Donald Saddler became friends while performing together in the Broadway Show Follies in 2001. When the show closed, they decided to rent a private studio together, and they have been choreographing and rehearsing original dances ever since. At age 90, they continue to pursue their passion for life through their love and mastery of dance. Keep Dancing seamlessly blends nine decades of archival film and photographs with present-day footage to tell a story through dance of the passing of time and the process of aging.
