November 2014

Go Giants!
The Giants had a chance to clinch their third World Series title in five years Oct. 28 when they met The Kansas City Royals for game 6 of the 2014 world series in Kansas City. They were now tied 3-3. But, darn, it didn’t happen. Score: 10-0, Royals. Another game to go. Amazing anyone showed up for Tuesday’s annual Halloween dance. But a fair number of good spirits arrived to keep the other pagan celebration alive. From goulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night, Halloween happened at the Santa Clara dance. Shown here are this year’s gorgeous winners, Paul Lynch and Janette Adair.

September, 2014: Featuring Joe Brcich

 

JoeBrcich

I usually get to the dance early and go upstairs to have a cup of coffee and relax after a death defying drive here. From my roost, I can look down on a very large dance class in progress. Everyone seems animated, attentive, and interested, a teacher’s dream. I notice that many of the same people are happily back time after time. It occurred to me that our dance instructor must be pretty good at what he does.

I’d heard Joe has been teaching here for 20 years! Awesome! especially since he’s one of the younger people here. But wait. He’s actually been teaching 28 years! for TGA alone! No wonder he’s so good at what he does. I asked him how that happened and how he got interested in dancing in the first place. This is what he told me:  See More

June, 2014: Featuring Jim Fox

Who is Jim Fox? In case you haven’t heard, Jim Fox was recently elected president of the board of directors for TGA, the club that organizes the Tuesday dances here at the Santa Clara Rec Center. You have recently seen him calling the mixers. We thought it only fitting that we say a few words of introduction. See more . . .
