“Dancing is a barometer for me. If I can do 5-7 dances and I’m not huffing and puffing, I’m doing alright.” - Warren T. Jarvis
Warren Jarvis, who turns 88 on Valentine's Day, still has a spring in his step. You can find him most Saturday nights dancing at the VFW hall in White River Junction, VT. After he got out of the Navy, Jarvis went to dance school. He's been dancing for 68 years, but that was threatened when he was diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis.
