This dance party will include a Fundraiser for a very special member of our dance community, Kathryn Johannessen. Awesome raffle prizes at our Chinese Auction, dance performances and Salsa and WCS classes where all of the money will be donated to Kathryn. She has always been so generous to all other people and their causes when they have reached out so I do not know of anyone who deserves our love and support more than Kathy. Please come and support this wonderful person who needs our help. Even if you do not know Kathy, I promise you a fantastic evening of music, dancing and friendship. Any donation of a prize or basket for our raffle or Chinese Auction will be greatly appreciated. Please contact Lori. Thank you!

It's been 9 years since we lost Arte Philips from our lives but never from our hearts and memories. He left an irreplaceable void in our community but his humor, heart, intelligence, talent, creativity and charisma will remain a part of us forever. I was honored when he agreed to join me in teaching the hustle class and to dance a spontaneous lead follow hustle at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing years ago.
