Meet Our Board of Directors

  • Conrad Heer
    President and Board Member

    Conrad first started coming to Colvin Run Dances in 2002. The Colvin Run school house brought back warm childhood memories of an old school house near his home town that was no longer used as a school, but was used for social events in the community. In addition to the charm of Colvin Run School, he enjoyed the people and found them to be outgoing, friendly and sincere. As the old saying goes, “You ‘bump’ into the nicest people on the dance floor.”

  • Jean Rosenbluth
    Treasurer and Board Member

    Jean and her husband, Bill, came to the Colvin Run Schoolhouse in 1985 looking for a place to dance with good ballroom music. Not only did they find a charming, historic building with a beautiful sprung oak dance floor, with bands playing great music, they found some wonderful people who were very welcoming and friendly. In a very short time, Jean was volunteering as an officer in the Colvin Run Citizens Association, which owns, maintains and preserves the Colvin Run Dance Hall. Since that time, Jean has served in various offices, including Secretary, Vice President, President and Treasurer for the past 20 years, as well as on the Board of Directors.

  • Tom White
    Board Member

    Tom and his wife, Susan, first came to the Colvin Run Dance Hall in 2006 in search of a venue to dance social ballroom. They quickly fell in love with the rich history and charm of the old dance hall. "I still enjoy watching a first-time visitor walk in the door; look at the wood panel barrel vaulted hall and say, ‘WOW’! says Tom. "The WOW factor is universal for everyone that walks in the door -- this place affects people that way." Susan adds, "We were immediately struck by how friendly and welcoming the people were towards us.

    Board Member

    I hail from Providence, R.I. but transplanted to the Washington, D.C. area in 1979. This is where I met my lovely husband, Rob Martin. We have two wonderful adult sons, Ethan and Brett. In fact, we recently celebrated Brett’s marriage to Crystal with a private party at Colvin Run Dance Hall. It was a very happy event for us, and was extra-special because it was at Colvin Run.

    Tom and his wife Jane discovered ballroom dancing over three years ago when taking an introductory lesson at Arthur Murray's Ashburn studio where they remain students to this day. Through word of mouth they heard about the wonderful people and ballroom dancing at the Colvin Run Dance Hall. They immediately fell in love with the charming facility and its friendly people. Tom looks forward to being an active Colvin Run volunteer and board member now and in the future.
