This building is mentioned in the book "The Astaires" a book about Fred's life with his sister, Adelle. Got to visit West 46th street today, where the facade of Israel Miller's shoe store, The Folks Shoe Shop, has been restored, looking much as it did a hundred years ago. The four statues are Ethel Barrymore, Marilyn Miller, Mary Pickford and Rosa Ponselle. Their statues were lovingly restored at a restoration facility near my home in DC .

I really must say that it's a pleasure to be slowly getting back on the practice floor, after several months off from dancing.
I've stopped teaching as a full time career but have made plans to continue dance by donating lesson hours to college programs, and local community centers.
It's been nice to spend my dancing hours with friends and family, it has been a refreshing break from business side of dancing.
