In June 2015, a retired teacher named Shirley Clements made headlines after a video of her dancing to “Uptown Funk” alongside her students went viral. The 60-year-old had been teaching dance to high school students for many years and had created the Outbreak Dance Competition to promote hip-hop and breakdancing.

Dancing had been a passion of Clements since she was four years old, and she believed that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their passions. Her students affectionately referred to her as “Mama Clements” due to the welcoming and supportive space she provided for them.

During the performance of “Uptown Funk”, Clements couldn’t resist showcasing her own impressive hip-hop and breakdancing skills. While she didn’t intend to steal the show, that’s exactly what she did. Her dedication to promoting dance and providing a supportive environment for her students serves as an inspiration to anyone who may be hesitant to pursue their dreams, regardless of age.

Clements’ story reminds us that age should not limit our ability to pursue our passions and showcase our skills. Her impact on her students and the dance community is a testament to her character and the importance of promoting inclusivity and support. Shirley Clements’ legacy lives on as an example of the power of pursuing one’s passions and providing a welcoming space for others to do the same.
