Although Eggleston's work in the Superior Court kept her off the dance floor for years, at 62 years old, she's reprised her passion for dancing and is now involved with several local dance associations and centers, including the Moose Lodge, which is bustling with senior dancers ready to hustle or ballroom dance on any given night of the week.
"It's good therapy," Eggleston said. "I put so much effort into work, and now that I'm not working, it's so nice to get back to this."
Like Eggleston, Burbank resident Bill Wiechmann can be found dancing at the Moose Lodge frequently. Once part of the Megglin Kiddies, a dance troupe that produced such talents as Shirley Temple and Judy Garland, Wiechmann has been coming to dance at the lodge for 10 years.
