Val Weaver takes a bow after her swan song performance.
By Sentry Staff
Val Weaver, a dance teacher for the past 40 years, hung up her shoes after a final personal performance at a farewell ceremony at Orange Lutheran High School. Val initially gave lessons as part of the City of Orange recreation department program, and then, 33 years ago, opened her own studio at Taft and Tustin. The Val Weaver Dance Center will continue at this location with Jeanne Estrin at the helm.
Weaver’s students have performed at the Orange International Street Fair on Saturday mornings for the past 33 years. The tradition goes back even further, as her city students performed on the back of a flat bed truck 40 years ago.
