Virginia McLaurin, the supercentenarian who won hearts after dancing with the Obamas in 2016, just received a happy birthday shout out from former first lady Michelle Obama.
“Still dancing at 110 years old—happy birthday, Virginia!” Michelle Obama wrote on Instagram today.
McLaurin, of Washington D.C., met Barack and Michelle Obama at the White House three years ago after her campaign to meet the president, who was in office at the time, went viral.
“What’s the secret to still dancing at 106?” Barack Obama can be heard saying in the video, which was viewed by 70 million on the White House’s Facebook page.
“I am so happy,” McLaurin says in the video, adding that she was there to celebrate Black History Month.
Michelle Obama replied, “We are happy to have you.”
Since visiting the White House, McLaurin danced with the Harlem Globetrotters and attended her first Major League Baseball game. That same year, Washington Nationals even presented her with her own jersey featuring number 107, to honor her 107th birthday.
McLaurin was born in 1910 when William Taft was president, but fulfilled her dream of visiting the White House and meeting President Obama at age 106.
