Phyllis Sues: A Dancing Queen In Her 90s

Phyllis Sues Is Dancing Her Way Through Life—And She's In Her 90s | NextTribe

In the 1930s through 50s, Phyllis Sues was a New York City dancer, appearing all around town and even in five Broadway shows. More than half a century later, this dynamo’s dedication to staying in motion hasn’t flagged a bit.

At age 95, this L.A. woman is living a life of movement and adventure. She does yoga and planks for three minutes every day. She’s gone sky-diving, swung on a trapeze, but what we love most is seeing her dance the tango – spinning, lunging, and being twirled in the air. Despite arthritis in her spine and while wearing gorgeous dresses, we might add, which reflect her fashion flair, honed during her 22 years as a designer.

She reflected on aging a few years ago, writing: “To be 92, or any age, and sedentary, and dealing with memory loss is no way to live. Aging can be exciting, creative, active, and even daring. But—that’s a huge but—it’s not easy to own this. It takes work, desire, and most of all loving what you do every day, every minute, every second, even if it’s washing dishes.” If that’s not inspiration enough, check out her website or follow her on social media.
