Carolyn taught MANY of us to dance at the Dance Corral. We laughed and learned and danced together. I was the DJ for many of those lesson nights and she would walk in 5 minutes before teaching-tell me the dance and say pick a slow and a medium song! She taught me so much so quickly. Often the slow song was "Long Branch Hustle"-her favorite slow one to teach to. Now years later many of us are still doing those same dances and when we hear Long Branch Hustle, we think of Carolyn. We are planning a Dance Corral reunion soon and would have loved to reconnect with her. The reunion will be later when we are dancing in heaven..............
