Dance


Foxtrot Freddie and I attended the Phoenix USADance Black Tie Fundraiser last evening. USADance is the organization for amateur ballroom dancers. They will help find ballroom dances in your area, help find legitimate sanctioned teachers of ballroom dance if you want totake lessons and they do many philanthropic ventures in the community to further ballroom dance. For example, they provide professional dancers to go to nursing homes or other venues to give performances, they provide scholarships for young talented people to take lessons, they pay professionals to go into the schools and participate with the Physical Education programs to teach dancing to youth. It was a tremendous event, lovely venue and a pleasure to enjoy such a well planned evening. It does my heart good to see these young (some very young) dancers out on the floor, learning this new skill.
