93-Year-old ballroom dancer

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- A 93-year-old woman in Kalamazoo is an inspiration for her skills on the dance floor.

There's a big ballroom dancing competition in Vegas next week and you can bet that 93-year-old Tenho Connable will be there.

At an age when most people let their passions slip away, she is still going strong. When it comes to competing, she's no stranger to first place.

"I am often the only one in my age category," she said, laughing. "So that takes a little bit of the fun out of first, but I do get first!"

She said she started dancing as exercise, and just never stopped.
