National Ballroom Dance Week Showcase and Dance a Big Success!
Those who were present at the Greensboro Shrine Club on Sept. 27 enjoyed another great Showcase and Dance, our
11th Annual fall showcase. It was well-attended, with 119 paid attendance, including many people who
had never attended a ballroom dance event. Those in attendance saw 14 great dance performances,
featuring many different dance styles.
The dance performances were by Paul and Ling Sun, Tim Saunders and Virita Harper, Don and Carole
Baker (2 dances), Jerry and Jo Ann Snyder, Rockie and Mary Lou Troxler (2 dances), Billy Dillon and
Allison Bailey (2 dances), Carlie and Jan Coats (2 dances), Mel and Victoria Paterline, and Burt and Flo
Jackson. Terry and Melanie Whittington and Paul Kindley and Marty Bergman had prepared and
practiced routines, but were not able to perform due to other commitments.
As usual, it took a large number of volunteers to plan, produce, and execute the showcase. Because of
all those gracious enough to volunteer, rental of the Shrine ballroom is by far the largest production
expense. Our sincere appreciation goes out to all of the volunteers, most of who are listed below.
