April 17 (UPI) -- A video of an elderly German couple is going viral after they showed off skills that would make far younger dancers envious.

Nellia Ehrentraut, 64, and husband Dietmar, 70, are drawing accolades online after a YouTube video showed them energetically dancing to Johan Blohm & The Refreshments.

The video was filmed at an event called the Boogie Woogie Veterans Tournament in Landshut, Germany.

The couple, who married in 1070, said they have been dancing together for more than 30 years, and have won numerous awards for dancing in styles from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.

"We still have a lot of fun," the couple told ABC News.
