It all started as a joke. Deanna Patterson Cobb and her sister, Gwen Patterson, never really believed a tap dance team from Lugoff, S.C. would end up on the nationally televised “Dance Fever.”

But what started as a lark gave way to surprise, enthusiasm and unbridled excitement. All that jazz developed into the Lugoff dance team’s not only winning a preliminary competition and a final area competition in Columbia, but an appearance on the television show, to be aired on Oct. 4 on the ABC network.

Mrs. Cobb and Miss Patterson, who operate the Patterson School of Dance in Lugoff, were flown, all expenses paid, to Hollywood, where they stayed for several days in the Hollywood Hotel, right across the street from the studio where “Dance Fever” is taped.


Four rising seniors at Bethune High School have been cited by Presbyterian College as PC Junior Fellows in recognition of superior academic merit, president Kenneth B. Orr has announced. They are Christopher Charles McCoy, Donna Gainey, Susan Graham and Christopher Charles McCoy.
