At age 16, Ellen’s love of dance began when she went square dancing with her parents. She later studied Country Dancing which included Texas Two Step, Line Dancing, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, Waltz and Cha Cha. From there she branched out into Ballroom Dancing.  She has been in two performance groups, the Sundancers and the Lindy Hoppers, She has won several Jack & Jill contests over the years in West Coast Swing and Two Step. Although an accomplished dancer, Ellen thinks her main skill is making dance fun for her students whatever their level of accomplishment....particularly for those who are newcomers to the world of dance.

Band: The Buzzards

From the Buzzards web site....

The Buzzards are a rockabilly band out of Long Island.

Besides inciting riotous mayhem and general debauchery (not to mention occasional nudity), the Buzzards have performed at every rockabilly hot spot, including the Rodeo Bar in Manhattan and the Blue Comet just outside of Philly.

They are the house band at the Bayou in Long Island and performed at the Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend four years in a row. They were rewarded with a standing ovation each year.  They have performed at the Indy Rockabilly Rebel Weekend, the Heavey Rebel Weekender in North Carolina, and Rock n Rods in Philly.  They performed for the Rockabilly Hall of Fame many times, most notably at the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s first sold out concert, in Memphis, TN. 

They are the band of choice to open for national acts and received outstanding praise for their performance with the great Scotty Moore. Scotty even came out to the diner with the Buzzards after the show.

The Buzzards’ CD, “The Grand Buffet,” is still available.
