Sher Stevens, director of the City of Hudson Senior Center stated: “I think as seniors we’ve lived through different decades of music. Our swing dances have celebrated the music of the 30s and 40s. In September we will get down to the Motown music of the 50s and 60s, which represent some of the great musical moments of our past. And because music transcends the ages we have people from 3 years old on up at our dances so all are invited!”

 

Andrew Resto is a professional certified Bronze level dance instructor who has trained in the Arthur Murray and Fred Astaire systems. He has taught in ballroom studios in Hollywood, New York City and in upstate New York.
