Dancing Under The Stars Set For Summer Tuesdays
"Dust off those dancing shoes and get ready to join in the fun," Says Liz Sulik, the Executive Director of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce.
"Thanks to the generous sponsorships by The Wave Publishing and Sweet & Low, along with the enthusiastic support of the Rockaway Beach Civic Association, the Chamber of Commerce of the Rockaways is pleased to announce that ‘Dancing Under the Stars’ will continue to be an integral part of its Rockaway SummerFun 2003 Program on Tuesday nights."
According to Sulik, this year’s event will be dedicated to the memories of "Mr. Dancing Under the Stars" himself, Mario Russo, and to Mr. Leon Locke who, as publisher of The Wave, sponsored the annual event for many years.
Ellen Connelly and the Connelly Dance Center will be presenting the dance programs every Tuesday night from June 17 to August 19 (except August 5-National Night Out Against Crime) at the Boardwalk and Beach 84th Street. Each Dancing Under the Stars program will consist of a free one-half hour dance lessons beginning at 7:00 p.m. followed by "under the stars" dancing until 9 p.m. Suliks says, "if you have ever wanted to learn how to tango or rumba but just didn’t have the time to commit to serious dance lessons, this is definitely the event for you!"
Each Tuesday night lesson will be dedicated to one of the following: merengue, swing, hip hop, salsa, fox trot, hustle, tango, cha cha and rumba. Of course, you don’t have to dance – you can just come and enjoy the music and watch the special "surprise" demonstrations Ellen Connelly has planned. This is a great family SummerFun event for all ages. Learn how to dance and enjoy the beautiful Rockaway summer nights on the Boardwalk with friends and family.
