And, let me tell you, it was one beautiful sight!
Last September we lost Morry Gelman, a folk dance instructor who probably did more than anyone to advance Austrian and German folk dance in the US.
Biography: www.phantomranch.net . . .
Last night we celebrated his life - about a hundred of us, an event hosted by his local son and daughter. Inasmuch as he lived 91 years, you can imagine the age of the crowd, but you would not know it from the way we kicked up our heels and the pace of that music!
Morry, we look forward to joining you on some smooth hardwood floor.
We brought so much food that the hosts would have to find an army base to finish the leftovers.
