Dance teacher Shirley Clements wasn't about to retire quietly. A video of the 60-year-old Vancouver-area teacher performing a dance routine to Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" has quickly gone viral thanks to her enthusiastic moves and even some break-dancing.

Clements is retiring this year from her position as a gym and dance teacher, Global News reports, and the performance was part of the Outbreak dance competition which she founded 19 years ago.

Clements says she's been dancing since she was just four years old. She says she's "fantastically passionate" about dance and that the routine was her way of leaving an unforgettable mark on the legacy of the competition.

The video has gotten over 2 million views alone just by being featured on The Ellen Show's "Ellentube."

Talk about going out with a bang. Get it, Shirley!
