Susan & Tony Papandrea
How we met by Susan:
We met on December 30, 1978
at a popular disco in Brooklyn called Gazebo. I was walking to the ladies room and this welll dress man tapped my arm. I looked
at him and he pointed to the dance floor. Well. I forgot about checking my makeup. I just smiled back in a daze and without
a word between us he delicately took my hand and brought me to the dance floor. The rest of the evening we just danced
and laughed. We started dating right after that and our lives together began. Kismet!
was the beginning of our lives together we pursued more of it. After our 2 kids got older we took lessons at Fred Astaire
where we met Iva & Bill Loftman and Bob & Diane Addonizio. Then we took lessons at the YMCA where we met Jim &
Maria Dolce. We were sponsored by Theresa & Mario Clemente and we can't thank them enough as we now have a non stop steady
stream of wonderful dancers to get to know. We have been with the ballroom club 5 years. The best element of the club... are
the people. "It's a gift to be a member"
