WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18TH 2002 -- AT THE RHYTHM CLUB
This holiday season, why not give your loved ones something they've always wanted...swing! Whether it's a series card, good for four weeks of great dance classes with Lindy By The Sea, or maybe some passes to the Rhythm Club on Wednesday nights, it's a gift that really fits all! You can even set up some private lessons with Rusty -- what a terrific present for the swing dancer in your life! Just email us at email@example.com, call 310 606 5606 or personally ask for any of these things at any Rusty and Peter event, and we'll be more than happy to take care of you!
He's one of favorite regulars, and, of course, a favorite among the girls for dancing, and favorite among the guys for an example of suave and style. Here he is, then and now, our very own Pete Vincent. As he put it, sixty years ago and sixty pounds later! Some good things never change. We all love ya, Pete!
If any of you would like to have a private swing dance lesson, give Rusty a call at 310.606.5606. (Photo: David Saffir)

*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).
