The Showoffs Perform Chicago!
Watch out Renee Zellwegger and Catherine Zeta-Jones! The showoffs are here! What a night! Women's Executive Club, an organization that I have belonged to for over 20 years had it's annual fundraiser last night. It was held at the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum and had a 1920s theme. So The Showoffs, a dance group that I've been with for the past few years, performed our special choreography to the opening medley from Chicago. It's a dance that I've been wanting to learn and I'm so glad I had this opportunity.

Here's a few of us in our opening pose. I'm the one in the middle, in case you don't recognize me! hmmm, I think I like being a redhead.

Thanx to Jim for snapping a few photos during the dance. It's not easy to capture a moving target:

There were 7 of us in the dance

And, here's our teacher/choreographer John Wittenborn

We had a very nice audience:

We've been learning/practicing/rehearsing for about 6 weeks, but we need that last rehearsal on location to know our spots on this dance floor. Here we are with John shouting instructions and showing us how.

After the performance we posed for photos in one of the antique cars. Here's all 7 dancers: Valerie, Hermine, Denise, Sharon, Cathy, Wendy, and me with John and Russ the manager of the museum:

Do you think I'm having fun?

And here's a photo (scanned) taken of Jim and me. I think he's having a good time too!
