Mid-December Update 2019

Posted on1 CommentCategoriesGeneral Update, Monthly Newsletter, Uncategorized

Our dear friend, Jackie Vario, passed away on December 9th. She was a very special member of our tap dance community and we will miss her greatly. We will be holding a special memorial class in her honor on what would have been her 93rd birthday: Monday, January 20 at 10 am. During this class, we will take some time for people to share their favorite memories of Jackie. After the class, we will go to Ted’s Hot Dogs for lunch, which is something we did to celebrate Jackie’s birthday for that last few years.

All friends of Jackie are welcome to attend, even if you are not interested in participating in the class. We would love for everyone to come share their favorite Jackie story. Please let us know if you plan on attending, if you plan to participate in the class, and if you will be joining us for lunch. We would like to give Ted’s advanced notice with an approximate number.

  1. So sorry to hear about Jackie. She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. I plan to be there January 20 to celebrate her life and talents, to participate in class, and munch those veggie dogs at Ted’s.
