The Central Ave Cotillion Dance Ensemble
The Rev. Dr. Della Reese Lett and the Willing Workers presented a Holiday Party last night, December 5, 2009, at the First Lutheran Church in Inglewood, CA.
Sterling and Taylor danced the Obama Inaugural dance to Etta James "At Last". I only worked with Sterling for a short time, but he adapted the choreography I gave him to the music, trained his partner, Taylor, and they both did a fabulous job.
The History of Black Dance in America crew performed a Waltz to Nat King Cole's "Unbelievable". Rosalind, Antoinette, Atiya, Ace and Carleton learned this routine in two weeks. None of them had danced the Waltz before. I am quite proud of their performance. I hereby officially name them: "The Central Ave Cotillion Dance Ensemble".
Folks were ballroom dancing to Fred Astaire music last night -- in Inglewood! My God, a change is coming.
Many thanks to the Beverly Hills Cotillion Dance Ensemble for their assistance in helping me to help make this happen.
