For those of you who were at The Rhythm Club last week, you got to see Jerry whirl Rusty around the floor in a sensational Fox Trot ("And take it from me, if I can Fox Trot, anyone can!!

RON'S BIRTHDAY AND THE FABULOUS CRAZY SOCK CONTEST!
WOW! What a fun night at the Rhythm Club last week. Rhythm Pal Ron's birthday celebration with the first annual Crazy Sock Contest was a sure-fire hit. Ron got to dance with all the girlies and some of the boysies on his personal birthday dance.
L-R: Joanell, Blake, Sarah, Robin, Mae-Lae, Rudy, Jason
The Crazy Sock Contest had scores of competitors, but the winners certainly "stood" out (yucka yucka yucka) with their outstanding (sorry) socks. Our judges were The Rhythm Wives -- Mae-Lae and Robin, and the winners were:
SOME HOME MOVES
Last week we reported on Rusty's performance at the Argyle, but this week we've got some sound motion pictures for you! Yes, through the advances in modern technology, you can see pictures that actually move. (Oops, thought I was back in time again...)
Here's some more photos from that evening of swell entertainment and dance, and apparently limbo contests! (photos courtesy of Joya Balfour and Alex Vasallo)
If any of you would like to have a private swing dance lesson, give Rusty a call at 310.606.5606.
SWING CENTRAL RUSSIA: It's everywhere! That's right. Swing dancing is everywhere including Russia. This website was put up for your perusing pleasure by Rusty's friend Megan Virtanen. She's the vintage gal whom Rusty met last year in St. Petersberg. And what a fun website this is. Although the text comes across in jibberish (unless you have a Russian reader), the links are terrific. There are some movies, great band links (including our own Bill Elliott), and clothing links. Have fun with this one. You never know when you might find yourself in Russia, and now you'll know where to go dancing!
See you on the dancefloor!
*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).
