Sergio and Gracy

Sharing the story of the Danzon as solely being about two entrepreneurs who start a business with a silent partner would be succinct but lacking much of the story.

A more detailed version would include the work of the wives. Stella Nuñez Castro was Danny Castro's wife and partner: she helped with many different needs and tasks. Her story like many women's stories is less evident, but no less important.

Gracy is in the picture above taking reservations; Sergio is facing the camera.

There is something about Gracy that epitomizes the alluring grace that could be a part of the cha cha cha, mambo, and rhumba on dance floors like the Danzon.
