Page 30 Flamenco in Quartzsite Meet Flamenco Dance Instructor, Marie Murphy Looking for a healthy hobby? Dance is good for the body, mind, and spir- it. Come join Marie Murphy and give your body, mind, and spirit a refreshing workout. Dance in- structor Marie Murphy would love to share her love of Fla- menco Dance with you right here in Quartzsite, Arizona, at the Arizona Western College (AWC) Quartzsite Learning Center. Marie began studying Span- ish Dancing as a child and was even recruited by then well-known Spanish Fla- menco dancer, Lola Montes. Although her young age pre- vented her from joining Ms. Montes' dance troupe, she did join a local troupe, La Paloma Dancers, and danced in various venues throughout her years of lessons. February 1, 2012 Ms. Murphy retired in 2005 from her position with the City of Redlands as the Director of the Joselyn Senior Cen- ter. While working at the center, she began a Spanish Dance class for se- niors. It was so popular that the class has continued to this present day. Marie Murphy currently resides in Running Springs, California, but con- tinues to teach Fla- menco Dance in her spare time. Her students have per- formed for various functions in the city of Redlands as well as cities in the sur- rounding area. She and her husband, Bill Murphy, enjoy wintering in Quartz- site and are both members of the band "On the Road Again" 425 N.
