In May, staff writer Makeda Easter reported on the 100th birthday drive-by celebration for Joan Bayley, who danced alongside the likes of Judy Garland and Bing Crosby before moving on to a 30-year career teaching at Westside School of Ballet in Santa Monica. Former students turned out to honk and wave as Bayley blew kisses from her yard.

An update: Ex-students saw The Times article and asked Bayley if she would resume teaching during the pandemic, so she’s back to teaching a class about once a month on Zoom. We give thanks for that.
