VIDEO: 106-year-old Virginia McLaurin dances with the Obamas in The White House Newsdesk Newsdesk

106-year-old Virginia McLaurin was so thrilled to meet US president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle in the White House that she celebrated it with a dance.

McLaurin, who was born in 1909 in South Carolina, said: “I’m here to celebrate black history.”

She said she was delighted to meet America’s first black president and his “black” wife, while holding Obama and Michelle’s hands.

Mrs Obama, who often breaks out into dance moves in front of the cameras, was happy to dance with the 106-year-old.

Last March, America’s First Lady showed her moves off to the world as she danced to chart-topper 'Uptown Funk' with US TV host Ellen DeGeneres on her show.
