Introducing "my" dancers. These wonderful ladies are the St. Luke's Steppers from St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Summerville, South Carolina. They are my students - and my friends.
We started dancing a little over a year ago. The group is for folks 50+; some danced as young children; some had just dreamed of learning to dance. Tonight marks the group's first public performance, although the Steppers have entertained at church fellowship functions before. Tonight they are providing the entertainment at the "Miss Summerville" pageant, a local Miss America preliminary. The three numbers they'll perform tonight are "Charleston," "Forty-Second Street" and "Greased Lightning."
