Arte Phillips - 1959 – 2008

I received this sad news a while ago. Arte Phillips past away in his sleep November 12th.

Artie was such a wonderful person. He always greeted you with a huge smile and a hug. He enjoyed dancing more than anyone I know. He treated everyone he was dancing with equally. It didn't matter if you were a super-star or a beginner. It seemed like his mission when he was dancing with you was to make it the best, most fun dance of your life.

I know Mary and I are really going to miss him.

Here is Arte's website: artephillipsdance.com.
