THE BRONX - A local dance troupe has been tapping and jiving through the Morris Park section of The Bronx for the past 50 years.

Andrea Verdeschi, known to her students as Ms. Andrea, has been teaching generations of young dancers ballet, tap and even gymnastics.

The big anniversary celebration won't happen until June of next year, but dancers who attended the studio 20 years ago will be back to show current students their moves.
