92-year-old Austin Woman Caught on Dash Camera Dancing with Police Officer

(ABC 6 News) -- It's not something you see every day -- a video of an elderly Austin woman dancing with a police officer. But that video, captured on dash camera, is capturing the hearts of people in the city and beyond.

Austin Police Sgt. Kim Lenz was driving near the city's downtown last week when she noticed Millie Seiver dancing alone in the parking lot of her apartment building.


Lenz drove up, turned up her squad car's radio, got out and started dancing with Seiver.

The heartwarming moment was "very unexpected," Seiver said.

"I don't know, I was just so amazed, I was so shocked, I didn't think it would go any further than that," she said. "Probably a little proud, I suppose, of the fact that it drew attention that I'm able to do what I can do."

The video was posted to the police department's Facebook page, and as of Sunday night had been viewed more than 21,000 times.

Those who know Millie said it's no surprise, as she loves to dance and is quite good at it.

"Yup, yup, always dancing. At her 90th birthday party, we were out dancing because I love to dance too," Seiver's granddaughter Tammie Maus-Sutphen said.

And at 92, Seiver is proving age is just a number and hopes other people will get out and join her.

"I'd like to see more people be more active, out walking and things like that," she said.
