An Evening With Miriam Nelson

"AN EVENING WITH MIRIAM NELSON"?90-YEAR YOUNG DANCE LEGEND
NOV. 20, 21, 22 ~ THREE NIGHTS ONLY!

My great friend, Miriam Nelson, decided it wasn't enough to live beautifully to 90, to have her autobiography published... she decided it was time to get on stage herself!
For years, Miriam has been choreographing numbers for television, movies, and nightclub acts, but now it's her turn, and you won't want to miss it!
I'll be at the Saturday night show, and it be wonderful to have a big group of tappers.
Also, if you don't have a copy of her autobiography yet, "My Life Dancing With The Stars," you can get it there and have her sign it. The book is also available on my http://rustyfrank.com/shop/ontap.asp, as well as her instructional tap DVD "Play Piano Play". (You can see a preview of that here on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP0dldglRwk. Watch Miriam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxq_4vARgio from the 1940s.
