The owner of Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom, Christine Georgopulo, was born on Valentine’s Day, and she celebrated on the dance floor along with a group from Abilis.

The evening started out with the twist, and got creative as couples made up their own dances and showed off ones they’d been practicing back at Abilis.

“For us to be a leader in disability services, we have to be part of the community,” Daly continued. “We’re very lucky to be part of a great, inclusive town.”

“This is the best birthday I could possibly have,” said Georgopulo. “Just seeing everyone having fun. We’re all just people who want love and happiness.”
