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!”
Attendees do not need to attend with a partner. Beginners are welcome; this dance is for ALL ages. Refreshments will be served. And there is a dance lesson with Andrew Resto, a professional certified Bronze level dance instructor who has trained in the Arthur Murray and Fred Astaire systems. In the weeks before the dance party, Mr. Resto will also be offering free dance classes on Friday evenings at the Library.
