Ms. Beverly's Memories!


 On Saturday, August 11th 2012, I attended Flo-Motion Dance Association's 1st Annual Graduation & Anniversary Celebration. 

 By far, this was one of the best dance programs, I have ever attended. Flo-Motion of Houston made their event a dance community affair, and many influential Houston Two-Step dancers received recognition.

 Thanks, Flo-Motion Dance Association, for having me as a guest. All the graduate's routines were all fabulous!  I cannot wait to see what your next event would bring about to the Houston dance community. "Smile," and keep up the good works.
