August 4, 2015

The steps Larry Richardson’s feet made in more than 30 years teaching ballroom dancing would take him around the world one and a half times if they’d been in a straight line, he estimates.
Living again in the town where he was born, Richardson will be applying his dance expertise during “Dancing With the Cars,” a street dance at Third and Main in Chewelah this Friday, August 7. The 8-10 pm event, sponsored by Chewelah Arts Guild, will offer dance instruction, demonstrations, and contests, as well as food and drink.
