Success Stories: Just For Fun

Ballroom Dancing
Fay, age 61

I have two grandkids, both 9 years old, and keeping up with them is a top priority for me. Not only do I want to have the energy to play with them, but I want to be around for a long time to watch them grow up. I want to see them both walk down the aisle one day. To stay active, my husband and I go ballroom dancing at least once a month, and we practice dancing at home almost every day. We've been doing this for 11 years now, trying everything from swing to Latin. Our favorite place to go is a local officer's club, which has brunch and dancing on Sundays. It's a very social activity, and we meet up with close friends there who have also been ballroom dancing for years. There are lots of activities out there — you just need to pick one. We happen to enjoy dancing. I like that it keeps me active and keeps me healthy enough to enjoy my time with my grandchildren.
