A Chance Meeting At The Phoenix Club
I saw Mike at the Phoenix Club watching the dancers; he was there to hear the accordina music in the lounge. The next week, we has there again so I stopped and said hello. He mentioned jhe wanted to dance so I invited him to the table. He has dance instruction from Irene, Donna, Sue, Nancy, and others.
Within a few weeks he was up and moving and joined our crazy group of dancers. We are happy to have him with us!
