Seeing Stars

Tonight's ball was a great end to a beautiful dance week! We will rest our tired feet and bask in warm memories.

Photo: Norma Miller in the sparkly outfit of a showbiz queen. You can't quite tell in the photo, but her blouse and pants are embedded with glitter, and even her watch is covered with rhinestones. "You got to have bling," she explained.

Norma and our other grande dame instructor, Skippy Blair, got a chance to meet and chat. They discovered that they had both danced at Steel Pier in Atlantic City in 1936. Skippy was 14 at the time, and remembers watching rehearsals of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers, including 17-year-old Norma. They didn't meet there, but it was another one of those cool shared connections.
