‘Dancing Queen’ inspires at age 94

Margaret Masters, 94, is the pride of her Zumba class, and she says dancing makes her happy and keeps her healthy.

She’s been a regular visitor to the Humana neighborhood location in Metairie, Louisiana, for a few years, and an active participant in the center’s weekly Zumba class with about 35 other area Humana Medicare members.

“I always liked to dance,” she told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “It feels so good. I am just blessed and I always keep moving.”

The newspaper wrote: “Although Masters credits her longevity to eating healthy and being active, there is always a spark of exuberance when her favorite song ‘Fireball’ by Pitbull comes on during the Zumba class. ‘The class goes quiet and everyone waits for Pitbull’s song… When Margaret says ‘Fireball’ we all jump up…it is so much fun.’”
