Here are samples of various costumes, some made by me, some professional. These are only a few of the costumes. From many I have no photos…..darn!





One of my original Rumanien outfits

A Professional Bulgarian group. 

Which we tried to copy. This is my group from Urberach.


A professional Russian group. 

A Croation costume of one of the ladies from the Balboa group.


Me in an original Rumanian costume and Vera, from my Aschaffenburg group, in a self designed practise outfit but with an original vest. 





 This was my self-made israely costume.

Again, self-made israely costumes, together with my then husband Michael





More of Balboa Park

Here are some pictures of the Park itself it’s worth it to visit even without dancing. The buildings were mostly built around 1915 for an Expo….and were not built to stay up long, but they did.

This was the original building where my first dance experiences took place. It got torn down but re-built with many of the original decorations.

And of course there was dancing all over the place.

The first Sunday of the month was „costume Sunday“ and some great costumes were worn….some original, some home made.

Here I’m with Andy Moffitt who I danced with often!

Here’s Steve with his then wife…..

Here  Steve Henderson….my main partner back then. We did many exhibitions together. Fun stuff!!

Today, 2021, I found out he has been diagnosed with Parkinson!! So sad…..
