Jo is inducted into the UCWDC Hall of Fame!!

What an honor it was to be the first line dancer inducted into the UCWDC Hall of Fame at 2012 World's XX last Saturday in Orlando, Florida!  I was thrilled to be able to accept the award in person and share that moment with Tim and Anna.  

I received a beautiful crystal globe, a lovely pendant and an awesome belt buckle that all say "2012 United Country Western Dance Council Hall of Fame".  I'm so excited...I've never won a belt buckle for anything before!  It's my first!  

It was also a privilege to be able to dedicate that award to my mom, Rita, for being my inspiration, my support, my role model and my co-choreographer for all these years!  It's hard to believe we've both been teaching for 32 years!

Anna's favorite part of the weekend was having her face painted at Epcot and getting Mickey Mouse and Pluto's autographs at breakfast!  Photos and video will be added later...
