I don’t have any long history with Val, but I am happy to add my admiration and congratulations, too! Just a few months ago, actually, I was in there asking her about some particular dance rhythm. How can some novice like me today understand the popular dance rhythms of the early rock-n-roll era… She told me some fabulous history of her parents dancing on a bistro tabletop. “They just knew” what dance it was. “You could feel it and hear it. Not like today.” Righty-o, Val. Right you are, like usual!
Fantastic asset to the Arts District. We are so lucky to have her depth of knowledge, passion, and bright ideas!
Hope all the Val-a-palooza goes great (I’ll be out of town, alas).
