Our granddaughter Andrea has learned the art of belly dancing. Which she does pretty well. One day, we asked her if she would be willing to teach belly dancing to a class of women from our adult community. She agreed enthusiastically. We were able to form a group of about twenty women at ages of about 70-90 years old. Well, they say that a picture is worth a thousand words. So you must try to picture this: about twenty women ages 70-90 in all shapes and sizes, standing in a pool with water waist deep, trying to belly dance. Can you get the picture? The spectators around the pool were hysterical, but Andrea was all business. This is a favorite memory of my granddaughter.
