WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A 96-year-old New Yorker says she’ll be performing a ballroom dance on “America’s Got Talent.”

Tao Porchon-Lynch tells the Journal News (http://lohud.us/1eXEjfW ) “Nothing is impossible. Inside of us is the power to do anything.”

The nonagenarian already holds the Guinness Book of Records for the oldest yoga instructor.

The White Plains resident will make her appearance Tuesday evening on NBC’s popular reality competition.

She says it wasn’t intimidating to audition for the judges because of her years of film and stage experience.

She first began dancing at 85. Since then she’s won hundreds of first place ribbons at various dance competitions.

People often are surprised by her energy but Porchon-Lynch says if you believe in something, go for it.
