72 Year Old 'Mickey' Singer Toni Basil Still Has The Moves

Most of us remember Toni Basil best for her MASSIVE 1982 hit single 'Mickey' which sold over 2 million copies in the US alone.


While she did some cheer leading in the video, did you know that as well as acting in a string of films including American Graffiti and Easy Rider, Toni is better known in the entertainment industry as a choreographer, working with names such as David Bowie and Talking Heads.

Basil is considered a pioneer of "street dancing" which became better known as rap or hip-hop dancing, and today she is still choreographing stage and television shows.

And as this video filmed earlier this month highlights, at 72 years young, she's STILL got it!
