Louise Neistat, a 92-year-old former Rockette, hasn’t let age get in the way of her passion for dance or her desire to help others, the Huffington Post says.
A short YouTube documentary filmed by Neistat’s grandson, filmmaker Casey Neistat, tells the tale of the New London, Connecticut, woman who has been tapping for nearly 50 years and has turned it into a way to help fund cancer research. She teaches tap six days a week to 70 students in her attic-turned-dance studio. She gives the proceeds from her annual tap shows—more than $100,000 over the years—to the American Cancer Society.
Neistat joined the Rockettes in 1941 and went on the road with the United Service Organization, which did shows for U.S. troops across the country. Her father died of cancer a month before her first show—a tragedy which “made her want to cure cancer with her dance,” says Casey Neistat.
