96-year-old White Plains dancer makes TV debut

A 96-year-old Hudson Valley woman made her dancing debut on NBC's "America's Got Talent."

Tao Porchon-Lynch was born in India, but her travels brought her to the Hudson Valley, where she has taught yoga for a decade. The former French model says she was named the oldest yoga instructor in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.

"Nothing's impossible," she says. "If you want to do something, you feel it's good, don't procrastinate. Go and do it."

Porchon-Lynch performed on the show with her ballroom dancing partner of six years. All four judges gave her a "yes," allowing her to move on to the next round.
