Jean Veloz, still dancing at age 88

She's revered as one of the most stylish and most inspirational swing dancers in LA during the early 40's, and she's still out dancing. A couple weeks ago Jean headed out to Herrang, Sweden, to teach and dance at their yearly event.

Here she is, with all her style and class, dancing with Marcus Koch at Herrang:

We all want to be her when we grow up.

I'm off work for the rest of the week, and plan to do some patternmaking/sewing, shoe shopping, and on Sunday I'm celebrating my birthday with friends. Hope you have a safe, happy and relaxing holiday!
