Dick Van Dyke is still dancing through life! The 88-year-old performer proved he can still “step in time” with the best of them while shopping with his wife, Arlene, who recorded his smooth moves in a Vine video posted to her account on Thursday, May 29.
“The wait is over…another Mr Vandy Dancing Vine,” she captioned the clip, referring to her husband’s Twitter name, @iammrvandy. The vid shows the former Mary Poppins star swiveling his hips and grooving to music in a clothing store, showing off his fancy footwork amid racks of shirts and pants.
Van Dyke himself retweeted the video, along with another clip from May 2013 that shows him dancing (and even moonwalking!) in what appears to be the home goods section of a department store. Arlene, 42—who married the Diagnosis: Murder actor in February 2012—also posted a Vine in October of her hubby doing a little soft-shoe routine backstage at Access Hollywood.
Van Dyke’s dancing skills are of course legendary now, but as he’s noted in the past, he had no professional training when he got his big break in the Broadway-bound musical Bye Bye Birdie back in 1960—which makes his iconic penguin dance in 1964’s Mary Poppins all the more impressive.
The Hollywood legend will next appear onscreen in the sequel to Night at the Museum. According to Arlene’s Twitter, he also recently filmed scenes for Buttons: The Musical.
