Dance instructor dies

Genoa dance instructor Larry Ward died at his Carson City home on Monday.

Ward, 77, moved to Northern Nevada from Los Angeles and Orange County in 2008, when he started his ballroom and square dancing classes.

Ward learned square dancing in school and became a caller as a 12-year-old. In his 60 years of dancing, he learned ballroom dancing, worked at movie studios and helped form the B-Sharps square dancing group — still active after 55 years. He taught dance in Los Angeles and Orange County before moving to Nevada.
