CONGRATULATIONS, MARY!!!

On March 29th, 2013 Mary competed with multiple time Swing and Country Dance Champion, Ronnie DeBenedetta, at the San Diego Dance Festival in a 5 dance competition which included Waltz, Cha, Night Club 2 Step, Country 2 Step and West Coast Swing.

She took First place Overall and can now add the title "UCWDC Pro Pro Female Diamond [over 40] Classic Champion" to her list of awards.

It has been over 30 years since she has competed in a 5 dance competition!

Anyone who has taken lessons from Mary has seen her case full of trophies. Mary received a compliment recently at Dallas Dance when a dancer smiled and exclaimed, "You're a legend!"

Mary was especially honored when the San Diego swing dance community gave her a tribute for her dancing and for her contributions to the dance community. Mary is honored by the admiration and respect that she receives in the dance world, and she uses it to share with people the wonderful gift of dance.
