The Last Dance - Jie Du-Tennant's Birthday Celebration 2017 at Michael's Cafe

"The Last Dance"

What a way to wind up an era.
We celebrated this night, not only with our last double feature, (Dawn and Jie) but also our last theme night, (White Night), to ever be held at Michael's Cafe, as the doors were to be closed forever just three weeks and a few nights later on May 27th.
Jie will forever hold the distinction of having danced the last ever, hustle night, birthday dance at Michael's Cafe.
It is with bitter-sweet feelings that we leave our familiar haunt with so many varied and numerous, memories we have shared over the last 20+ years.
It has been my pleasure to capture, preserve, and share many of these memories with all of you over the years. And, it is my hope that you have enjoyed viewing them as much as I have enjoyed bringing them to you.
In the near future I will be compiling some of my favorite images and memories, as well as perhaps other surprises and some interesting statistical trivia as it relates to the many birthday dances we have all so much enjoyed.
Let us raise a glass to Michael's Cafe for providing us a venue that we have appreciated, and will never forget.
Until we meet again.....Keep Dancing !

Dawn's Birthday Celebration 2017 at Michael's Cafe

"Dawn 2017"

Not only was it "White Night" at Michael's, unbeknownst to us, it was also the last night that any birthday celebrations would be held at our favorite venue, where we have danced the night away for the past 20+ years.
Michael's would close it's doors for good just 3 weeks later. Dawn's was the first of two birthday celebrations this night.

The End Of An Era - The Final Hustle Night At Michael's Cafe

May 24, 2017, the end of an era. An incredible run of 20+ years of hustle dancing came to an end.
These are but a small segment of the many dancers and friends who came out to celebrate the good times we have had over the years.
As we now look forward to the future, and a new venue, hope to see you there.

My Birthday Celebration 2017 at Michael's Cafe

"Out From Behind The Lens, 2017"

What a night.
I'd like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who came out in celebration of my milestone birthday on April 12th. I was very touched by all of your cards and good wishes, which were, and are, very much appreciated. As you know, I am usually behind the camera, instead of in front of it. It was a very special treat for me for sure. Thanks to everyone, who contributed, in any way, to making my night special: to my dinner/dancing/bowling family for their warm company at dinner, and for providing the cake, including the great artwork by Ron Morrison; to DJ Mark for artfully playing my music; to Donna Boyle, Bill Jamieson, Robert Moss, Kathy Peoples, and John Salmons, who contributed in capturing all of the action; to anyone else who wished me well, or provided their support, and last, but certainly, not least, to all of the lovely ladies who lined up to dance with me. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every dance. Kisses and hugs to every one of you. It was a very special treat for me. To all who participated, you really made my night. I am already looking forward to next year.
Love and Thanks to you all.
Best regards, and keep dancing.

The Dance Doctor chose to forego the usual birthday dance, and instead opted to invite
everyone on the floor for a group dance instead. This was the result.
