The Henry Ford has put an end to the 67 year history of traditional dancing in Lovett Hall.
The ' Last Dance' will be Sunday, Feb. 6.
Although the monthly dance, led by Glen Morningstar since 1981, has drawn 200 - 300 dancers,it has been subsidized by the HF education interests. It is now part of 'catering'. No more dancing.
Of course, Henry built the place way-back-when for community dancing. Got old Ben Lovett to move here from his dance gig in New England lead the dances here. Ben taught 'dancing & comportment' in the schools for a good while.
Of course, that was before the Grande.
But that, among other things was 'community dancing'. And though Morningstar's band ain't Pentangle , it's all the same when the tunes are flowing and the dance is on. But things change, right?
Thanks for listening. Time for more coffee.
