Remember that catchy tune "Mickey" sung by the peppy cheerleader, Toni Basil?  "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey!" Everyone was singing it in 1982, and every girl was cheerleading along to the video.  But what you may not know about the song's artist, Toni Basil, is that she was at the time already a very accomplished choreographer.  She may not have put out more hit songs, but she has gone on to choreograph and direct dance sequences for Tina Turner, Bette Midler's Vegas show, and movies like Legally Blonde, That Thing You Do, and My Best Friend's Wedding.

What's even more amazing is that time and age haven't slowed this lady down one bit.  At age 72 (!), she has dance moves to rival those more than half her age.  Watch her break it down in a recent dance class and wow everyone watching.  Oh Toni, you're blowing our minds!
