91-year-old Indy woman tosses walker aside, dances to celebrate end of therapy

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A 91-year-old Indianapolis woman ditched her walker for her dancing shoes.

Julia Lewis is a longtime resident of Magnolia Springs Southpointe. She recently returned from a hospital stay and graduated from therapy services with Golden Age. She told the staff, “You’ve got me feeling so good, I want to dance! Do you mind if I do the jitterbug to celebrate? I’m loving life!”

And that’s exactly what she did!

Julia loves dancing, and she dances all the time.

Julia told FOX59 she’s never taken dance classes. “That’s just what we did when we were young,” she said.

She started dancing as a teenager, and she loves dancing to anything by Elvis.
