Mary Blackstone is from Ellsworth. She is a retired professor and former Dean of Fine Arts. She and her partner Cameron Louis, have been dancing since 1995. They dance both American and International style dances, and have studied at studios in Canada, the UK and the US. They have competed in amateur dance competitions, but first and foremost they enjoy dancing as an activity they can do together at home, within the local dance scene or wherever they travel. They always enjoy an opportunity to use their teaching skills to get others of all ages up and moving on the dance floor and enjoying this fun kind of exercise.
