Boogie in the Burgh 2009

We just returned from our annual Pittsburgh dance trip. Every year the Steel City Boogie Club puts on this dance. About 500 people and a very good time is had by all. This year was their eleventh year. We have been there for all eleven. This is the canopy over the front door from the porch of the Embassy Suites hotel near the Pittsburgh airport where the dance is held. This day it was in the 60s and no coat was needed. Sadly, two days later the flag in this sketch would be lowered to half mast in honor of three police officers killed April 4th.

The two sketches above are of people in the ballroom either in the workshops or just observing as I was. The bottom sketch is of two of the many couples trying to learn some new dance moves.
