A ballerina print hanging in Age Well’s lobby caught the attention of residents Al and Connie Gobert. The image of the graceful dancer's shadow triggered fond memories of Connie’s ballet dancing days for the couple.
Connie started dancing at age 10, attended ballet school in Milwaukee, WI and played the lead role of Alice in a production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. When she married Al, Connie took a lifelong dance partner of a different sort and a final bow from the stage.
Al proudly told Age Well’s Executive Director Michael Leonhard about Connie’s dancing days and asked if they could have a copy of the print for their apartment. Not missing a beat, Michael ordered the ballerina print and presented it to Al and Connie in front of their friends at a happy hour.
