Dance steps, self-expression and cute outfits
Way back at the beginning -- before all the lessons and recitals, conventions and classes -- dance was all about the outfits for Dana Riste.
That was in 1976. Riste had never set foot in Brenda's School of Dance, and the only thing she knew about dance class was that she had a friend who was in in them, her friend got to wear a cute outfit and Riste wanted one.
"I just thought the costumes were great," said Riste.
