Multigenerational dance teacher Sandi Friedman brought the youngsters and oldsters to perform at the William Breman Jewish Home on Sunday, April 26.

The official recital will be at Riverwood International Charter School in Sandy Springs.

Friedman got the idea of starting a dance school while she was teaching kindergarten at Ahavath Achim Synagogue many years ago. The original dance school, going on 69 years, was her mother’s in Spartanburg, S.C.

Now teaching out of her home, Friedman has students ages 3 to 87.

Her students performed several dance numbers with lively costumes, umbrella props and smiles, all for the benefit of the residents of the assisted-living facility.

“I have the world’s best job,” she said.

And who has ever danced to “It’s Raining Men”?
