NORWICH When youre 91 years old, its important to stay active, says Catherine Fisher.

Youve got to keep moving, Fisher said.

To keep moving, the Oxford resident participates twice a week in an Osteoporosis Prevention exercise class for seniors aimed at building bone density and strengthening the overall body.

Im 91, and its done good for me, said Fisher, whos also a line dancer. I think I get around better.

Developed at Tufts University, the program is focused on lessening the impact of practical, everyday movements like lifting, walking and getting out of chairs on the body.
