Dancing Dick Van Dyke Proves Age is Just a Number

Dick Van Dyke
Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix at D23’s Destination D

I saw this on Facebook, and knew I wanted to share this happy video (and great song) here with everyone. As a life-long Disney fan, I think we’d all like to think this is just how Dick Van Dyke is on a daily basis (maybe without the live band, but you get the idea). Some people are just born happy and what makes them happiest, is spreading joy to others. I was lucky enough to see Dick Van Dyke perform at D23’s Destination D a few years back (he was at the 2011 D23 Expo also but I wasn’t able to get in to see him!) and he definitely still has it. And we are all lucky that he’s still sharing the talent and gift for putting a smile on anyone’s face, with the world.

The band featured is the Dust Bowl Revival and this is what they say about the video below on their YouTube page:

We had the luck and the privilege to share the first single “Never Had To Go” from our 2015 release With A Lampshade On with the man himself, Dick Van Dyke and his lovely wife Arlene. They said come over and let’s do a video. So we did. What a dreamy guy. At 89, he really can still dance like he’s in Mary Poppins!

The album drops officially July 21 – released by Signature Sounds Recordings.
