Other Hobby

Besides being amateur radio operators, we were also serious ballroom dancers.  We started dancing in 1990, and competed in events from Oregon to British Columbia until Susan's knee surgery in 2002. We were very fortunate to have Sergey Nekrasov, holder of numerous Russian championships, as our coach.  This photograph of us was taken in December 2003.

Social dancing (no costumes required ) can be a lot of fun and good exercise.  If you'd like to find out more about dancing in your area, click on our photo to connect to the USA Dance web site.  USA Dance is the national association for amateur ballroom dancers.  They're a good source of information on beginner programs and social dances across the United States.
