After meeting at age 11 at a junior-high-school dance and dating seriously in college, the Franklin, Michigan couple wed at age 20. Now both 80 (and the parents of two, grandparents of five, and great-grandparents of one), they’re still dancing―every morning at 6:30. “We enjoy disco dancing and jitterbugging,” says Betty. “We keep going until a song comes on the radio that we don’t like.” Video by Gillian Laub.
