Seen & Heard
I wandered into a beautiful garden restaurant recently. Delightful
and spacious it was, and they were playing Bach music! I needed
nothing more. The place is called Borsalinos Ristorante
Italiano, in Ajijic now seven years.
Right away I had a question: Who
are the dancers in the large photographs? The owner,
Jimmy Borzani, and his lovely wife, graciously answered my questions.
The man in the photo, Jimmy said, was my father, Dano
Borzani, and yes, he surely was a professional dancer all over
the world. He was what you call a Natural. He won
all kinds of prizes. Hollywood gave him $5,000 to teach George
Raft to dance the bolero in that famous movie. Then they called
him again to come back and re-teach Raft, adding $l0,000 to the project
a LOT of money at that time!
Jimmy told me he didnt get involved
in dancing; he went for sports. No doubt about it, though, he
is proud of his father. Dont you just love Naturals?
