This event - what could be said about this event? Ladies, how would you like to be very talented, very coordinated, very compatible with your team members, and be "drop-dead gorgeous" at the same time? And let's not forget all the lucky gentlemen who also competed, faces aglow with smiles and obvious pride in their hearts. They not only have the same talent, coordination and compatibility, but they get to practice and dance with all those lovely ladies.

Spotlight on Seniors - Senior Olympian Elise Canepa. (A Biopic)

Elise has been dancing for over 60 years, and has lived in the Mid City area of New Orleans for more than 70 years.  The parents of 3 daughters, she and her husband loved Square Dancing and Round Dancing. They also enjoyed dancing at the Jefferson Orleans Ballroom.


Before Hurricane Katrina she was very active in the People's Program taking dance lessons and teaching dancing, playing tennis and other pursuits.  Since Hurricane Katrina, Elise joined Elmwood Fitness Center and became very active taking line dance lessons, pilates, yoga and zumba gold.  She has earned several GNOSO gold medals with the Elmwood Sassy Steppers in the GNOSO Games. On a recent 7-day "Line Dancing with Linda" Norwegian Line cruise with her daughter Pam, Elise won the 1st place trophy and a bottle of champagne in a "Dancing with the Stars" contest.  Everyone loved her and she had the time of her life! Elise is truly an inspiration to all of her Dance Team members. She certainly inspires the Dance Event Coordinator and the "Sassy Steppers" Director.
