On Friday night before the 2012 AU homecoming game, the Knights played at the Marriott ballroom, site of our reunion concerts, drawing over 400 people, mostly students, who danced the night away to the swinging sounds of the AKO.

The first hour was a group class on swing dancing, which turned out to be a big attraction. During breaks, the dancers kept swinging to the beat of a combo of AK alums and friends including Jane Drake, Susan Woody, Richard Garrett, Bob Jemian, and John Norton.

The most frequently heard comment was “when are you doing this again?” The Knights are hoping to schedule another dance on the weekend after Valentines Day. Stay tuned for more details. Link to photos is http://bit.ly/2012AKOfalldance.
