In Little Big Shots: Forever Young (premiering Wednesday, June 21 at 8/7c), seniors ranging in age from 60 to 103 showcase “hidden talents, vibrant personalities and incredible wisdom.” The first hour’s guests include a 72-year-old plumber-turned-opera singer, an 80-year-old tap dancer/Lawrence Welk Show alum (who gets a surprise visit from the great Betty White, who back in the day gave him his first big break) and, featured in the video above, 81-year-old Carla Wallenda, who is part of the famous family of circus performers.

Press play above to see the great grandma work the (sway) pole — once she catches her breath to climb to its top! In related news, I scaled an 8-foot ladder to hang decorations at church last weekend.
