RUSTY FLIES OFF TO EUROPE MAY 12-29
FOR A BIT OF A HOLIDAY -- A SWING DANCE CAMP -- AND INTERNATIONAL TAP DAYS

This Sunday, Rusty heads out for a whirl-wind tour of Europe, where she'll be visiting friends, participating in the Boogie Baren Swing Camp with Peter, and teaching and performing at two international tap festivals. She starts in Zurich for a few days in the alps, then takes the train to Munich, where she'll meet up with Peter. After four days together teaching at the Boogie Baren's swing camp, she'll head up to Belgium to visit a friend there, and then over to Holland to visit another friend, and then participate in the Holland tap day on May 25th. Then she hops on a plane and lands in England just in time for the tap day there on May 26th. And finally, a few days relaxing on the foggy British isle with her cousin who is starring in the West End hit comedy "Complete Works of William Shakespeare - Abridged." She promised to try to send word and perhaps even some pics from the road.


Off to Lansberg!

*Wondering what the heck a "gate" is?  This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program.  It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
