Summary of eRumor:
Celebrity dancer Ginger Rogers is alive and well at the age of 92 and wowing audiences with a new salsa act. Some versions of this eRumor include a video attachment or a YouTube link.
The woman in the video is not Ginger Rogers. She is a 75 year old grandmother from England named Sarah “Paddy” Jones.
Jones made the news in 2009 when she won a televised talent contest in Spain with her dance instructor. According to a December 11, 2009 New York Post article she has been dancing most of her life but took up salsa dancing five years prior to the contest, a short time after the death of her husband.
Ginger Rogers was a famous celebrity dancer who was paired up with Fred Astaire in 1933 in the RKO musical film “Flying Down to Rio.” Together they appeared in several RKO musical productions from 1933 to 1939. Ginger Rogers died in 1995 at the age of 83 in Rancho Mirage, California.
