I’m writing with some sad news. Akira Chiwaki, a local swing dancer, died last week. Akira had been dancing swing since 1999 and went out to various venues on a regular basis.
There will be a memorial service on Sunday, April 13 from 2-3pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley
1 Lawson Rd, Kensington, CA 94707
in the Sanctuary
Also, I’m collecting remembrances of Akira from dancers to give to his family. If you knew him, please take a moment to write something you appreciated about him, or maybe a memory/story you have of him.
Please send your appreciations/remembrances to Brandee@CuriosityInMotion.com by Friday April 11th.
Do spread the word to any other dancers who may have known and enjoyed dancing with this sweet man.
