Local Hero: Marguerite Frongillo
Marguerite is the personification of the Dancing Spirit. She loves Contra dances and any type of traditional, regional dances from around the world. She is a current member of the ContraCola (Columbia Traditional Music and Dance) Board of Directors and the organizations Vice-President; she also books all bands and callers! Her enthusiasm goes beyond the regular Contra dances; during the week she holds free classes at her house to share the beauty of dancing from many countries.
At Contra dances, during the break Marguerite brings an unusual, fun dance or two so that everybody can learn something new. She is a dancing hero, indeed!
