Sandi was born and raised in Washington, D. C. to dancing parents. As a toddler she stood on her father’s dancing shoes as he twirled her around the room. By the time she was twelve years old she performed dance routines with her dad at Walter Reed Army Hospital for veterans.
She moved to South Florida in 1980 and worked as the Dance Coordinator for “To Sea with Z” where she positioned dance hosts and dance instructors on cruise ships that sailed all over the world. Sandi has danced her way through life!
How befitting as Sandi is approaching her 85th birthday, that she has come full circle, back to the veterans and the happy childhood she remembers by creating the organization known as The Ageless World of Dance for YOUTH and VETERANS. When she is not tripping the light fantastic with her sweetheart Tony Luis she is dancing with Lon Wilkerson, our Executive Director. When Sandi first danced with Lon, she asked him how old he was, and Sandi responded, “you’re dancing with your grandmother”. She said, “The Ageless World of Dance!” And that is how it started.
The Goldcoast Ballroom has been her favorite place in the world for the past 26 years. When the Covid pandemic hit the ballroom hard, Sandi asked her financial advisor Allan Weiss what she could do to help keep the ballroom alive and they came up with a plan. When she met Lon Wilkinson, a dance instructor new to the area, they discussed ways to bring more business into the Goldcoast. Sandi has been working with youth for many years. Lon has been working with veterans and teaching them to dance. They combined their two passions and started the Ageless World of Dance for Youth and Veterans...
