JudyEllisLocal Hero: Judy Ellis

Judy started dancing with us when she was still living and working in Southern California as a corporate secretary. When she finally retired she moved to Cayucos permanently and became an active member of our dance community. She has served as the secretary on our Board of Directors for several years, always recording the goings on at our meetings with accuracy and humor.

She has also served as secretary, volunteer coordinator, and handler of all things contractual for our annual festival, Contra Carnivale, since its inception ten years ago. At 83, she is still one of the most beautiful, skilled and graceful dancers on our floor. She is such and inspiration and a joy to watch. We wish to honor her as our very special and most appreciated Local Hero!
