Yes, finally the truth is revealed. Our mild-mannered Glenn
Parkison (birthday boy of the week), who you see each week at the Rhythm
Club and behind the counter at classes, carries a deep secret -- his true
identity. We don't want to give anything away. But perhaps you
can figure it out for yourself, with the little clue of his automobile, pictured
here. Glenn, your secret is safe with us!
"Rusty, I think if all the members of the UN brought their significant
others and had a 'steal dance'* before their meetings, then we probably
wouldn't be having a war right now. That was a lot of fun last night
[at the End of Series Party]."
-- John Silva
Thanks, John. I think there are a lot of us who agree with you that social swing dancing could add such a lot of harmony to the world. Especially the "steal dance" (where you get to dance with everyone in just one song) -- it's friendly, it's silly, it's musical, it's fun, and it's joyful. We'll keep on dancing, and bring a kind of peace to the world in our own way...
THIS SUNDAY, MARCH 30TH
NEPTUNIAN WOMAN'S CLUB
That's right! Due to overwhelming demand, we are going to do another series of Balboa. If you missed the last one, come along and join the fun. Remember, in this series we learn something new each week (so you needn't have taken the last series). Balboa is a great dance for those faster tunes -- and you don't even get winded!
(Learn Balboa, and this will never happen to you on the dance floor!)

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).
