WANT TO JOIN THE FOLLIES?

       BECOME A FOLLIES DANCER!
Every year (especially after people have just 
seen our show) The Follies website receives 
messages from entertainers wishing to join
our Follies Spectaculars

We love that our show raises enthusiasm to
join, and it is our desire to add members to
our troupe.

However, certain requirements are necessary.
1) Follies performers must be 55 or over.
2) Follies performers must be permanent Florida
    residents. 
3) A prospective dancer must already know
    basic tap and jazz steps and movements.
4) A Follies performer must be able to commit to
    twice weekly (sometimes 3 to 4 hour) morning
    rehearsals all year long.  We start new rehearsals
    two weeks after our last show in March.

       We do random auditions all year long at
                       RDA Dance Studio,
                   6285 West Sample Road,
                   Coral Springs, FL 33067   
       Call 954-445-4232 for further information
    
In addition, Follies Choreographer and former 
New York Radio City Rockette, Cheryl Steinthal,
conducts tap classes for those wishing to hone 
their skills.   If interested, see below:

Follies Holiday Party 12-3-16

Greeters: Joanie Helgesen, Lois Ginsburg, Barbara Warner, 
                         Jo Schlags, Sandy Sanders.   
           Kneeling: Ethel Beardsworth, Donna Berger

CDTC's Jessica Vones & Dr. Ana Calderone-Randazzo,
Diaper Drive Chairmen - Beverly & Jim Blatchley, 
Follies Director - Sandie Lech-Bloom, Family
Central's Dr. Barbara Weinstein & Julie Klahr.

AND A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
The Follies enjoyed the annual Holiday Brunch
on Saturday, Dec 3, 2016, at their favorite party
place, Lighthouse Point Yacht Club!

Sandie Lech-Bloom gave an introductory speech
then introduced Dr. Ana Calderone-Randazzo
from Children's Diagnostic & Treatment Center
and Dr. Barbara Weinstein from Family Central
who each spoke about how they were helped by
the good works of The Follies.  They shared the
many diaper and clothing donations brought in
by Follies members.   (Thanks to Beverly & Jim
Blatchley for organizing this task and schlepping
all the gifts.) 

Ruth Trimmer said a lovely short prayer before
our march to the buffet tables.  As usual, the food
was varied and excellent, and we ate our fill!

And we couldn't wait to get up on the dance
floor to music by DJ Michael during which Ellen
Schwartz led the group in many line dances.

Thanks to Margaret Taylor for her usual perfec-
tion in scheduling, planning and overseeing all
of The Follies' luncheons.  Thanks to our faithful
photographer, Sheila (Phil) Phillips, who always
does a terrific job of snapping photos!

We must acknowledge the time and toil of Bev
Blatchley who spent hours preparing and indivi-
dually wrapping the delicious homemade
chocolate treats placed at every plate!  Yum!

And who else but Margaret Taylor is most
deserving of winning the 50/50 Lottery!  She
was very generous and gave half of it back to
The Follies!  Thank you, Margaret!
