106 Year-Old Dancing in the White House

What better way to start off the Vitality Ballet blog than with Virginia McLaurin, the 106 year-old dancer. With enough energy and spunk to light up a room, she was invited to the White House to take part in Black History Month celebrations this month. When she met President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, McLaurin couldn’t stop herself from dancing! President Obama even suggested she slow down and stop moving so quickly.

When asked what her secret to dancing at 106, she says “Just keep movin’!” Couldn’t have said it better! So today’s goal: to keep St. Louis’ seniors dancing just like Virginia McLaurin.
