 The USISTD National Committee, having made the decision to present Mr. Geoffrey Fells with the Lifetime Achievement Award, took advantage of the opportunity when they learned that Miss Miriam Ellis would be taking her two granddaughters to Hawaii in May.  This turned out to be a very beautiful and gratifying occasion, with Mr. Fells being both surprised and delighted, and the young ladies taking numerous photos and a video, in honor of this most deserving presentation.

In memory of Julius Kaiser

Julius Kaiser

By: Lori Woods-Gay


We are all saddened by the loss of Julius Kaiser earlier this year. He was one of only three Honorary National Committee Members of the USISTD and a lifetime Member of the ISTD.


The Harvard Ballroom Dance Team will be holding a memorial for Julius
Kaiser, the team's beloved founding coach, during the Harvard
Invitational Hanlon-Ford Gala at 9:00pm on Saturday, April 11th at the
Boston Hynes Convention Center.  Alumni will share their memories of
Julius and his unique and generous contributions to the Harvard
Ballroom Dance Team and the greater ballroom community.  The memorial
will end with the first ever annual Julius Kaiser Award, given to a
competitor with great team spirit and who brings people together, just
as Julius spent his life doing.  After the memorial will be the finals
rounds of the Open Amateur Championship events and a show by Morten
Lowe and Roselina Doneva.

Memorial for Julius Kaiser
Boston Hynes Convention Center
Ballroom 302-308
900 Boylston St, Boston, MA
