Move over Miley Cyrus! There's a new twerking queen in town and she's more than twice the "Wrecking Ball" star's age! In fact, she's 73 years old and she doesn't just know how to shake what her mamá gave her, but she can work that booty for days. Joan Wind twerked along with 357 others in New York City in an event appropriately titled "Twerkers," event earning the Guinnes World Record for Most People Twerking Simultaneously. But no one seemed to shake it quite as well as this abuelita!

Out of the 357 people clapping their cheeks at the Twerkers event, no one caused as much of a stir as Joan Wind. She not only wowed the crowd with her impressive booty-shaking moves, but she went on for a while there. I never thought a woman her age could get down like that!

"Two or three years ago I saw it but I didn't think I could do it," she told the Huffington Post. "Then I tried it at home in the mirror in the bedroom. And I said, 'Oh, it's shaking very good.' " Shaking very good is definitely an understatement. You have to see the moves this woman has on her.

And now she's bringing her skills to the masses. Joan plans on starting a class where she'll be teaching other seniors how to shake their thang! "A lot of people my age just sit on the benches and count the pigeons that go by. But I don't count the pigeons. I run after them, which gives me a lot of energy," she added. I love the way this woman thinks. If everyone had her attitude they'd live up to 100!
