Professional Affiliations & Biographical Information:
Ballroom Director DANCE MASTERS OF AMERICA for 7 years.
INSTRUCTOR TRAINING SCHOOL KENT STATE UNIVERSITY. BALLROOM DANCING for future teachers.
United States Ballroom council achievement examiner.
United states Ballroom competition judge.

Began teaching Viennese Waltz in High school Pageant. Combined Gymnastics with Ballet to preform ADAGIO dancing with my partner as MARLO & ADRIAN.

Left High School in June and opened in New York City at the ASTOR Hotel on Time Square. JIMMY DURANTE was the HEADLINER. At 17 we attracted TV shows for STEVE ALLEN, KATE SMITH and THE ARTHUR GODFREY AND FRIENDS Wednesday night spot.

Several years of preforming in Vaudeville theaters, Night Clubs and Fair Shows.

The NAVY took me and Adrian became TERRY MOORE’S ‘STANDIN’ for the movie BENEATH THE TWELVE MILE REEF, WITH ROBERT WAGNER. After ship docked each night, I taught Dancing to the mostly Military and USO in KEY WEST, FL.

MOVING TO MIAMI I taught in two commercial studios for about two sales meetings each and opened my own for after 8 hours at HERTZ so I’d have something to do!! The MARLOW BALLROOM lasted 30 years in Hialeah, FL. Lessons every night, Friday Live Band Dances, and Weddings etc. on Saturdays. Sundays were repair, fix and cleaning. OH HAPPY DAYS!!!

Comments/ Personal Observations:
Too often the STAFF of NDTA gets very little THANKS for the many hours and personal money spent to offer material needed to keep us informed. I have seen Jim Forest (our founder) video many VHS tapes and gave them away. My dance partner for Cotillion classes, Christine Bell helped him make disco tapes and my friend and fellow ADAGIO dancer Francois Szony made tapes of LIFTS, all to help others.

Karen has been so thoughtful and has done so much to help NDTA! Lee Fox has been our on going mentor, keeping our meetings informed and our programs to please everyone. How can we begin to say THANKS except by bringing in new faces and helping where we can.
