I was sorry to read about the passing of a dance icon, Imogene Woodruff. My father, George Ward, taught drama to her sons at Woodside High School and I always looked forward to her glamorous entrances into a theater. Years later, I took ballroom dance lessons from Imogene and her son, Barry. What a dynamic duo! It was amazing to watch the magic that happened as a result of their experience, innate talent, and athleticism. Imogene Woodruff will be missed. Her legacy lives on through Barry's leadership of drama students at Woodside High.
