Ballroom dancing is making a comeback and here is your chance to learn this elegant and graceful art form. The Marygrove College Alumni Program Committee is once again offering eight, 1½ hour lessons followed by a dance where you can show off your newly acquired or finely honed skills.

Reuben Collier and Margo Lee ’00, both experienced instructors who love to dance, will guide you through the lessons and have you dancing like Fred or Ginger in no time. In addition to being fun, ballroom dancing is also very healthy, as it has physical, mental and social benefits. You can register on your own or with a partner. Leather bottom shoes are required.

Lessons, which are $5 for alumni and $3 for students with ID, will be held in Alumnae Hall in Madame Cadillac Hall from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. the following Thursdays: February 28, March 7, 14, 21, and April 4, 11, 18, 25, 2013 .

The dance will be held in Alumnae Hall on Friday, April 26, 2013. Tickets are $15 and should be purchased in advanced.

Proceeds will benefit the Jan Soleau, IHM Memorial Scholarship Fund. To register for the lessons, purchase tickets for the dance or for more information, contact Margo Lee ’00 at (313) 402-7776 or margolee2000@yahoo.com  or Diane Puhl at (313) 927-1443 or dpuhl@marygrove.edu. Let’s show those “Dancing With The Stars” celebrities they have nothing on Marygrove Alumni!
