Fountian Of Youth
Meet Don & Truly Judisch
and Truly are from Clive, Iowa, just west of the big city of Des
Moines, Iowa. Don & Truly are vivid dancers and enjoy traveling
to distant places to hear the music of Barefoot Becky & the
Ivanhoe Dutchmen. Don says he has traveled up to 3 ½ hours to a
dance in Wahoo, Nebraska. I asked them if they have any other
favorite bands. Don said they were all good and he also has a few
favorites like Malek's Fishermen Band, Gary's Ridgeland Dutchmen,
Karl's Country Dutchmen. Truly said she likes The Barry Boyce Band.
& Truly are members of the Polka Club Of Iowa. They enjoy helping
out with dance demos at care centers and assisted living facilities.
They also helped with the dances at the Waukee High School
asked them what kind of music they liked and Don told me he liked to
dance to Waltz, Polka, & Foxtrot. Truly said she likes to dance
to Foxtrots. I asked them if they liked any other kind of music and
Don said on an occasion he might listen to some Old Time Country.
& Truly are both around 75 years of age. They have been married
for 53 years and been dancing ever since they got married. Don comes
from a German background & Truly is from a Scotch, Irish,
English, Dutch, & French background.
told me that his parents both loved dancing and as a kid he remembers
going to dances with them. Truly's
parents did not dance. As for their children Don said that none of
them dance to polka & Waltz music.|
thanked Don & Truly for the interview and we all went back into
the dance at the Turner Hall in Keystone, Iowa. As I continue to
interview these fantastic dancers I am amazed at how they continue to
enjoy this fine music & dance. I hope someday when I am 75 years
old that I will be able to dance like they do.|
