Norma Miller’s 91st Birthday, 2010


Norma is a source of unlimited energy, humor and enthusiasm! In her ’90s and still going strong, still dancing, teaching, performing and inspiring thousands of dancers around the world. Her life story is quite amazing and worth reading about. I created this collage portrait on the occasion of her 91st birthday. It was presented to her at a swing event in San Francisco organized by Burnie Gibson. You can see her reaction on first seeing the portrait in the video below.
