107-year-old finally gets wish to dance with Harlem Globetrotters, then dishes out fantastic words of wisdom.


Source| The Harlem Globetrotters is an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism, theater and comedy…  and 107-year-old Virginia McLaurin is one of their oldest and most loyal fans.

You may recognize this sweet woman from her dancing with President Obama and the First Lady – She’s got some pretty killer moves. But one of her greatest wishes has always been to break it down with this awesome trick-shot team.

And her dream has finally come true! But not only did Virginia get to do a little jig with two players – Moose Weekes and Zeus McClurkin – she also got to speak in front of a room full of children at Roots Public Charter School, where she still volunteers in Washington, D.C. And she gave some great advice,

“The only thing I ask you kids to do: Obey your parents – your mother and your father. Go to school. Get alllll the education you can get.”

Share Virginia’s unforgettable visit to see the Harlem Globetrotters and her wonderful words of wisdom!
