D is for Dancers....



   Okay, how could D not be dancers. I have had a love affair with musicals all my life. Not to mention having taught ballroom (think Dancing with the Stars) and country western (Urban Cowboy). Yes, I even taught a little disco...very little, I started teaching in the final days of the disco craze.

   So today is dedicated to some of my favorite dancers.  How many do you know.
