Age is just a number, and the Hip Op-eration Crew, from a tranquil island off the coast of New Zealand, is proof of that. The members of this hip-hop dance crew range from 67 to 95 years old, making them the world’s oldest dance group—canes, wheelchairs, hip replacements, and all. The Crew go on the journey of a lifetime as they try to earn their place onstage at the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in Las Vegas, but will they make it there? And if they do, will they be able to hold their own against competition three times younger?
“Regardless of your age or musical inclinations, this unashamedly feel-good documentary will
have you tapping your toes and whooping for joy.” — Sarah Watt, Sunday Star Times, New Zealand
