Dr. Lou Ponce competed in a ballroom dance competition in Nashville late February with dance instructor/partner Katie May Lee. The duo competed in the Latin, or rhythm, competition and was awarded first place. The Latin dance competition includes Swing, Rumba, Cha-cha, Samba, Merengue and Mambo/Salsa.

Dr. Ponce runs a medical practice in Portland and takes dance classes weekly, violin lessons weekly, and enjoys social dancing weekly. He says his Sunday afternoons are often spent with his two grandsons engaged in fiercely competitive ping-pong games.
