Florence Henderson may be 76 years old, according to various reports, but the former Brady Bunch mom is ready to cut a rug on Dancing With The Stars in 2010. Henderson is originally from Owensboro, Kentucky. She is easily the oldest of the Dancing With The Stars contestants this season. So when Florence Henderson takes to the ball room floor she’ll be representing millions of senior citizens who still try to stay fit and active. She’ll also represent those who aren’t in good enough shape to still dance as a senior citizen.
Many people will inevitably be asking the question, “how old is Florence Henderson?” That’s because Henderson will leave them guessing as evidenced by this article in People TV Watch. The Florence Henderson pic shows a senior citizen sporting a ‘mini’ skirt. It’s quite obvious Florence still looks terrific for 76 years old.
It’s quite amazing actually. It would be terrific to see the former Brady Bunch mom pull off a long stint on DWTS> Many of the older contestants haven’t lasted past the first few weeks on Dancing With The Stars. I fully expect Florence Henderson to outlast many of those contestants. She has always been very poised and graceful. Dancing is obviously a bit different than acting. The amount of intense training can be a grind. If anyone can endure that with a little pep-it’s probably someone like Florence Henderson.
Here are more photos of Florence Henderson on this website illustrating her grace on the dance training room floor. Season 11 of Dancing With The Stars doesn’t kick off until September 20, 2010 on ABC. That’ll give Florence a decent amount of time to hone her skills and be a fine representative of the senior community.
Florence will be teamed with Corky Ballas on the dance floor.
Could Florence Henderson be a dark horse to win the competition? It seems unlikely but you certainly never want to say never. The jury is out on most celebrities until we as as audience view the first dance. Henderson will no doubt be on the early audience favorites from her days on the Brady Bunch. She is a television icon unlike many of the other guests on Season 11 of Dancing With The Stars. How many celebrities can you actually say that every single person could name? If you take the “household” name approach, Florence just might be the biggest and most well known celebrity on a show that typically features entertainers who are currently hot or whose fame is slowly fading. Henderson will most likely touch young and old audiences with her grace and passion on the dance floor. It’s going to be one of those very memorable moments on Dancing With The Stars that you can’t afford to miss. My guess is nobody will be asking the question “how old is Florence Henderson” after watching the first few episodes. My guess is everyone will be saying “that lady can still dance!”
