“Grandma” Virginia McLaurin Dances & Shows Off B-Ball Skills With The Harlem Globetrotters

The 107-year-old came correct with more dance moves and a great piece of advice for the kids.
“[dropcap]D[/dropcap]ancing Grandma” Virginia McLaurin grooved her way into the White House, and now the 107-year-old is busting out some new moves with the Harlem Globetrotters.
Grandma Virginia was visited by members of the exhibition basketball troupe on Tuesday at the Roots Public Charter School in Washington D.C., where McLaurin volunteers as a foster grandma for the children. Players Moose Weekes and Zeus McClurkin danced for McLaurin and spoke to the children about the importance of education.
The group even helped McLaurin learn a few basketball tricks of her own.

While the visit was mostly fun and games, McLaurin shared a heavy piece of advice to the kids:
“The only thing I ask you kids to do: obey your parents — your mother and your father,” she said, according to TODAY. “Go to school. Get all the education you can get.”
McLaurin’s positive spirit is just one of the many reasons America fell in love with the southern native. In addition to her viral dance with the Obamas, she celebrated her birthday last week with a special luncheon and received a Presidential Medal of Honor from President Barack Obama for her extensive volunteer work.
The Globetrotters didn’t fail to shower McLaurin with gifts. She was presented a custom-made jersey with the number “107” on the back.
Check out McLaurin’s fun day with the Globetrotters in the video below.
