WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 28: Charles Grayton, 68, gets twirled by Sandra Curtis, 64, during an Old School Dancing/Exercise class at the Congress Heights Senior Wellness Center on July 28, 2010, in Washington, DC. Their conversation about their class played out much like their moves on the dance floor, one's words twirling about the other's. 'I love my dancing,' said Curtis. 'It's just aerobic exercise.' 'Dancing is aerobic exercise without the pain on your face,' added Grayton. Congress Heights Wellness Center is one of four DC government-run wellness centers in the city where membership is free to any DC resident 60 years of age and older. It offers fitness and nutrition classes as well as other courses on such topics as massage therapy, sign language, arts and crafts, and computer training. Says Linda Grymes, the acting director of the Congress Heights location, 'Our mission is to keep our seniors moving, keep them alive. We like to do preventative things that keep them off medications for illnesses like high blood pressure and hypertension, especially here in Ward 8.' She adds, 'We're in the business of enhancing their lives, for longevity and quality.' (Photo by Jahi Chikwendiu/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
