‘Dancing Under The Stars’ Begins Season

‘Dancing Under The Stars’ Begins Season


This summer season’s “Dan­cing Under The Stars” began last Tues­day night at Beach 74 Street and Shore Front Parkway. This year’s season was dedicated that night to Mario Russo, often called “Mr. Rock­away,” who led off the dancing for many years and Leon Locke, the former publisher of The Wave (the organization that has sponsored the event for many years). Pictured at the event are, from left, City Coun­cilman Joe Addabbo, Susan Locke, Liz Sulik, the executive director of the Rockaway Chamber of Com­­merce, a sponsor of the event and Diane Russo, the wife of the late Mario Russo.This summer season’s “Dan­cing Under The Stars” began last Tues­day night at Beach 74 Street and Shore Front Parkway.
