Congratulations! But it would seem you're not the oldest starter. A few
weeks ago a dancer in the Northern Virginia branch hosted a dance party to
celebrate her "significant" birthday. Since no one had ever known exactly
how old she was, and because she looked to be barely 80, she floored us when
she announced that she was 90! We all figured it was SCD that had keep her
youthful and vigorous. When I asked her how long she'd been doing SCD she
said, "Oh, about 16 years." Which means she was around 74 when she started.
So, Cliff, you have many more happy years of dancing.
