When someone mentions Dick Van Dyke, the first image that pops to mind is probably the actor in motion: making pratfalls across the living room he shared with Mary Tyler Moore on “The Dick Van Dyke Show” or shuffling like a penguin in a candy-cane-striped blazer in “Mary Poppins.”
One of his greatest gifts as a performer has always been his ability to stretch his lanky body in ways that look graceful and funny.
In his new book, “Keep Moving,” Van Dyke says that gift — specifically, his ability to dance — has kept him young and still vigorous at nearly 90. (He’ll celebrate that milestone birthday in December.) WashingtonPost.com
