A 73-year-old-grandmother by the name of Wilka Smytz, a retired youth counselor, is the musical DJ at a Warsaw club that caters to senior citizens and the younger crowd. Her most popular music styles are samba, rumba, sensual disco and rhythmic beats.
Playing three days a week, her dancing music is called Old Folks Disco Dancing. Grandmother Smytz's style of music is an inspiration to others her age, starting the feet tapping and the blood running. Grabbing a partner and twirling to her music of choice on the Pub Bokek Nowy dance floor is not the typical night out of an elderly person in a Warsaw dance club. Its better. Just ask the younger crowd.
Upon hearing of Wilka and her DJ music, photographers have begun taking pictures and capturing her 73-year-old youthful exuberance, filled with overwhelming charm and charisma. As a DJ in a field that typically belongs to the younger crowd, she is completely at her home in the music-filled atmosphere filled with a wide assortment of music style and up-to-date DJ equipment.
Enjoying her retirement, she spins music on Saturday, Sunday for retired seniors from her own self-taught musical beat. News anchors describe her as staying on the cutting edge of technology, while people half her edge cannot use an ipod.
