Guest Speaker: Suzanne Rosenthal, Tap Dance Club. Suzanne extended an open invitation to Photo Club members to photograph the Dance Club's events.  They will be holding a full dress rehearsal on December 11th, from 10 AM to 12 AM at the Starbright Theatre, Dress rehearsal is particularly good for photographers, since it will be easy to move around without an audience in the way.  The actual performance will be on December 13th, 7PM.  In addition, the Dance Club regularly performs both in Sun City and off-site. Photographers are more than welcome to attend.  Whether your interest is portraits, action shots, motion, or performance videos, this would be a good collaboration.  For more information, contact Suzanne directly at 702.901.4974.
