This is not a very sharp photo because I took it from a video that I was unable to post here. That is Ai’s leg standing straight up in the air as she and Wm Orrock flawlessly danced a rumba for our Valentine’s dance party. William is available for lessons and can be contacted at:

Sorry everyone, but SAMMY’S PARTY is cancelled. The dance is still on.
Unfortunately, Sammy fell and is recovering. He won’t be able to make his 90th birthday party. Since his birthday is Oct. 27, we would like to try 
again when they are scheduled to play next – Tuesday, November 3rd, to honor the man who has given us so many years of beautiful music. Stay tuned.
