002 - Birthday Bash 2020


September 10, 2020 will always hold a special place in my heart - the day I danced my very first "showcase" of 4 different dances in my own home studio with Gary Weidenmoyer, a PRO Dance Instructor who had been on Broadway !!!   Dancer friends, Elizabeth whose birthday was just a couple of days later and Gerard also danced earlier.

Tango - Margaret with Gary

Tango is one of my favorite dances.  I love the new routine that Gary just taught me during my 4th private lesson with him a month ago.



Waltz - Margaret with Gary

I had been dancing Waltz only socially as I didn't know any advanced steps but Gary changed that forever by teaching  me a  GEM routine.




Cha Cha - Elizabeth with Gary

Elizabeth had her Birthday Cha Cha with Gary for the first time in my home "ballroom".





Samba - Margaret with Gary

I danced Samba with Gary for the first time a couple of weeks ago when he taught me how to dance Promenade Runs, Shadow Voltas, Carioca Runs and Cruzada Walks.



Bolero - Margaret with Gary

I already knew a couple of great steps but Gary taught me a few more.   I now have quite a few moves to strut if only I can smooth out the edges.




Tango - Elizabeth with Gary

Elizabeth also danced Waltz with Gary at the end of her private Samba lesson as well as Tango later on.
