See the 107-year-old who danced with the Obamas shake it with the Harlem Globetrotters

Everyone fell in love with the 106-year-old woman who went to the White House and joyously danced with the president and first lady last month.

Prepare to fall in love just a little bit further.

The Harlem Globetrotters posted a video on Youtube Tuesday showing Virginia McLaurin, who turned 107 on March 12, dancing alongside the famed basketball entertainers.

"I'm really excited!" she said at the start of the video, clearly revving up for another entertaining dance session — this time with men twice her height.

According to the video's caption, the Globetrotters show took place at Roots Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., where McLaurin volunteers.

McLaurin danced with players Moose Weekes and Zeus McClurkin and even showed off some impressive skills, including spinning a basketball on her finger.

While at the school, Weekes and McClurkin spoke to the kids, drawing inspiration from McLaurin.

"One thing I always notice about Grandma Virginia," McClurkin said. "She always has the most enthusiasm."

Weekes and McClurki also gaved McLaurin a jersey, personalized with her last name and the number 107.

They also gave the students with 107 tickets to see them play while they are in D.C. and Fairfax, Virginia, this weekend.

Before the day was over, McLaurin offered some wise words of wisdom to the students.

"The only thing I ask you kids to do: obey your parents — your mother and your father," she said. "Go to school. Get all the education you can get."

We wonder where McLaurin's dancing tour will take her next!
