A Spectacular Salsa at Age 79

Born July 1, 1934, Sarah Patricia “Paddy” Jones started classical dance when she was 2½ years old. While dance was definitely her passion, Paddy put aside her dancing shoes when she married at age twenty-two. After her husband retired, they moved to Gandia, Spain. Two years later, he died of leukemia.

At age 69, Paddy resurrected her dancing dream and signed up for flamenco classes at Nico Espinosa’s Academy of Dance. Soon afterward, Paddy and Nico formed the salsa dancing duo “Son del Timbal” and achieved international success, winning several talent shows.

In April 2014, Paddy and Nico auditioned for the eighth series of Britain’s Got Talent.
