A video of Toni Basil giving an impressive performance at a dance workshop in France earlier this summer has gone viral. Basil, best known for her worldwide No. 1 hit “Mickey” from 1982, apparently hasn’t aged a bit since her peak stardom.
Basil was at a workshop hosted by French dancer Babson Baba Sy when he realized who she was and beckoned her forward. She put on a two minute-long dance routine in front of the group, as her classmates cheered on.
“Toni Basil, I was honored to participate in the workshop,” Sy wrote in a Facebook post. “Thank you to her for this gift… I took the biggest slap of humility by a septuagenarian artist.”

Fans on Twitter were just as impressed with her moves.
Basil’s infamous video for “Mickey” is considered the first choreographed dance video in history. Aside from “Mickey,” she has had a long, diverse career as a singer-songwriter, actress, filmmaker, film director, choreographer, and dancer.
