Rita Hayworth - Stayin' Alive


From the Main Event of the 2013 50-year Reunion:
Near the end of the evening at The Reef, Bill Mino and Beverly Chance Rueckert took to the dance floor and 
danced to some oldies.  Linda Tucker Wride asked them how they kept up their dancing skills--after all, a lot of us attended
ballroom dancing classes at Call's and can't remember how to do what they did.  
Bill sent some of their dancing history:


Like so many of our classmates, Bev and I joined the monthly dance classes at Call’s Fine Arts Studio.
I think it started out in 5th grade with square dancing and then we began ballroom lessons in 6th grade.
By the time we were in 7th grade, we were taking private lessons every week as well.
We continued this through high school, going through their bronze, silver and gold levels.


During our time at Call’s, we met a couple who had been world champions in International Style dancing,
with expertise in the waltz, fox trot, quickstep and tango.
We began taking lessons with them and eventually left Call’s to join their group.
We formed a ballroom dance formation team of eight couples, becoming the Captain couple of this team,
which appeared throughout Southern California, giving exhibitions at different venues such as Disneyland, Catalina Island and San Diego.

We became the first couple to be awarded the Gold level of expertise from the International Society of Dance Masters
in both International Style dancing and Latin Style dancing.

In 1967, we became International Champions when we won the Gold Medal at the International Society of Dance Masters
competition in Latin dancing and later, the Gold medal at the Western Regionals of the Dance Masters of America Society
in International Style dancing.

Finally, we appeared on TV on such programs as Let’s Dance, the Sunrise Show from San Diego and the Wink Martindale Show.
We did all of this while we were in college. That meant practicing with the formation team every Sunday afternoon,
choreographing new routines for our own exhibitions and practicing to get ready for them.



 We "retired" from dancing at the age of 22 and both went on to graduate school – Bev in California and me in New Orleans.
We didn’t dance again until over 45 years later at our 50th reunion, and while we lacked some of the polish of years ago,
it was still a lot of fun!



Dancing with the Stars--Way Back When!

Jane Welch, Hal Gordon, Joanne Bauchet Keenan. Barry Wood, 
and Linda Tucker Wride
dug deep and found pictures from Call's Fine Arts Studio.
Kids from several elementary and junior high schools came together
to learn to dance, bow, curtsy and, generally, play nice....

Have fun ID-ing these Dudes and Dolls!
