Sarah “Paddy” Jones (born in 1934) is the world's oldest acrobatic salsa dancer at 86 years old. Born in Stourbridge, England, Paddy is best known for winning a Spanish talent show called Tú sí que vales alongside her dancing partner, Nico, in 2009. The pair also competed in the eight series of Britain’s Got Talent, where they finished ninth overall.
Paddy started with classical dance when she was two years old and expanded to other types of dance at the age of fifteen. She stopped dancing at the age of 22 when she married and eventually moved to Gandia, Spain in 2001. After the death of her husband, Paddy started taking flamenco classes at Nico’s academy of dance, where she also learned to dance salsa. She was recognized by the Guinness World Records as the oldest acrobatic salsa dancer at the age of 75 in 2009.
