CONEY ISLAND -

A group of seniors are hitting the field and bringing their dance moves.

The Pacemakers are New York's newest senior dance team.

The group is made up of residents 50 years and over from across the five boroughs as well as neighboring states, such as Connecticut.

The love of dance brought them together from all walks of life. Some members are college professors, former Rockettes and even a New York Times journalist in founder, Susan Avery.

The dancers will be following the lead of professional team choreographer Heather Van Arsdel.

The group says they want to inspire people to get up dance even if they are not professionals.

The Pacemakers made their debut Saturday night at MCU Park during the Brooklyn Cyclones' game.

Anyone looking to join the group can find more information on their Facebook page.
