Description

Published on Apr 19, 2014 The judges and audience are surprised to say the least, by a lady who is just months away from her 80th birthday! Paddy was born in Stourbridge, England. She started dancing classical dance when she was 2½ years old and at fifteen years old began taking classes in more disciplines. However, she left dancing at the age of 22 when she married her husband, David. They moved to Gandia, Spain in 2001 when her husband retired, but David died of leukaemia just two years later. After the death of her husband, Paddy decided take flamenco classes at Nicolás Espinosa's academy of dance, where she learned to dance salsa and formed the salsa duo "Son del Timbal" with Nicolás (who is 40 years her younger). On 2 December 2009 the duo won the Spanish talent show Tú Sí Que Vales winning € 100.000 and global fame after being compared to Susan Boyle. After the international success, the couple competed in Bailando 2010 the Argentinian version of Dancing with the Stars, since they were voted off Showmatch (in round 11) the relationship of the couple has been fraught. Her partner, Nicolás decided it was time to move on, shutting down the bar he ran in Gandia, Spain, where Paddy lived and moved away from the area. Nico has since moved back to Gandia and the couple are again performing at Salsa congresses around the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZYuCCzUMFA
