Milwaukee Dancing Grannies.CBS-58

Three of the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies are among those killed Sunday afternoon when a man drove his SUV into a Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a Milwaukee suburb, killing five and wounding 48. Many U.S. cities have Dancing Granny groups, who march and dance at community parades and festivals. Many of them are former cheerleaders or retired dancers; the only requirement is being a grandmother. They love to perform and put smiles on people’s faces, a fun contrast with the usual American lineup of high school bands and dancers. The tragedy in Waukesha puts the grannies in a national spotlight for the first time; they have millions of fans from coast to coast, and sadness at these deaths is felt everywhere.
