On the July 5 episode of Little Big Shots: Forever Young, host Steve Harvey will meet an amazing group of talented seniors including the oldest gymnast in the world, 91-year-old Johanna Quaas from Germany, and the oldest showgirl, Dorothy Dale Kloss, who’s 93-years-young and still kicking. Before Dorothy dons her headdress and performs on stage with her dancing partner Ken Prescott, Dorothy cozies up to Harvey on the sofa during her interview. Harvey asks if she’s a cougar. She replies, “You know, there’s a lot of needy people in the world.”
Dorothy has been dancing since she was 3 years old, and in 2009, she made it into the Guinness Book of Records for being the oldest, living, working showgirl. She was last in the Palm Springs Follies which required her to dance in nine 3-hour shows a week. Dorothy and Ken are now performing and promoting their show “Two for the Road”. Dorothy and Ken were recently interviewed by Access Hollywood’s Alfonso Ribeiro, who was in the 1984 production of “The Tap Dance Kid” on Broadway (so was Ken!). During the interview, Dorothy shared a story about “teaching a young Bob Fosse how to dance!” Little Big Shots: Forever Young airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
