Studio marks 65 years of dancing

Janice Dyson has loved dance all her life, and has been teaching other dancers for more than six decades. She started dancing at age 2 and when she was 12 she put her tap board on the driveway of her parents’ home in south Fort Wayne to practice. The neighborhood kids watched and wanted to learn so she started her own studio in their living room, charging 50 cents for a half-hour lesson. By the end of that summer she was teaching 40 young dancers.
