[02/05/20]   We love celebrating members of our past Colvin Run family and last Saturday we had the distinct honor of celebrating the 90th birthday of Mary Lowe, who began dancing at Colvin Run when she was 15 (that would be 1945!!). Her only wish for her birthday was to dance a mixer, so her daughter called Colvin Run to see if we could fulfill her wish. Well, we fulfilled it many times over - she danced with many of the men for her "Birthday Dance," had a special birthday cake and song Happy Birthday to her. Her parting remarks were: This was the best birthday I've ever had." We, at Colvin Run, were so honored and happy to fulfill her only 90th birthday wish!! See how happy she is in the photos!

Tonight (2/1/20) we are going to feature a Peabody lesson, a fast one-step dance that was danced to the music of the 20s. We thought this would be fun to learn and try one night. The remainder of the night will be dancing to the ballroom music you know and love. Josh Squared with be providing the music and Cherisse and Richard Blachford will be teaching the fun Peabody as a fast Foxtrot done to contemporary ballroom technique.

The talented Michael Sims will be DJing Ballroom music and teaching a Quickstep lesson on January 18, 2020. Beginners are always welcome and you don't need a partner as we rotate often during the lesson.

Dancing in the la la la la la....!! Last night the Colvin Run Dancers braved the semi-darkness and took a Viennese Waltz Lesson from Michael Sims by lamplight! Because of an incredible severe thunderstorm that swept through the Great Falls area, all power was lost. Thanks to Kathy Milks, Bill Rosenbluth and Bob Ye, and other helpers, for creating enough light to do a lesson, have birthday cake and snacks and then leave. We love our dancers; they are the BEST! They love Colvin so much, they'll dance in the dark and make the best of a challenging situation!!! AND, it takes a village to run our dances and many stepped up to help during the evening. Quite an adventure.
