RUSTY & JERRY JORDAN TO TEACH
SATIN BALLROOM -- SATURDAY APRIL 19TH!

In an unusual and delightful event, two teachers from different schools will be teaming up to teach the Satin Ballroom class this month -- Jerry Jordan of Retroglide Dance Society and Rusty Frank of Lindy By The Sea. Usually dance "teams" are brought in to teach, but Monika and Reinhard came up with this wonderful idea! So come and join us for another great Los Angeles event. For complete information, go to their website: satinballroom.com

CROSSROADS SCHOOL -- "LET'S DANCE!"

Last Saturday Rusty and Ron travelled to Santa Monica, California to teach eager teenagers how to swing dance. The 80-minute class was the most popular of all twelve dance classes offered in the "Let's Dance" all-day festival for the high school. Guess how many girls there were compared to boys! Well, you know there were more girls, right? Well, let's put it this way -- there was one VERY smart boy!

STYLING WORKSHOP A HIT

Last Saturday's Styling Workshop with Rusty & Ron was loads of fun. Thirty people came together to spend three and a half hours delving into what makes dancing click; from dancing to the music, to dancing to the lyrics, everyone had a great time finding new ways to put their individual dancing across.

One of the exercises was to make up a bit of choreography to "Hit That Jive Jack". The worked together in four groups to create a simple section that reflected the lyrics. See below for the creative ideas of all the participants! And the fun!!

RUSTY & RON PERFORM
AT PICKFAIR WITH BILL ELLIOTT!

Last Saturday Night, Rusty and Ron got to travel back into time to the historic Pickfair Estate (originally home of Silent Film stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks) for a fundraiser. On hand was none other than Bill Elliott And His Rhythm, including the ever glamorous Cassie Miller.

Swing Shift

* 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).
