That's right! As you already know, Katia arrived yesterday. Ron and I picked her up at LAX, and after anxiously waiting for two hours, we finally found her! Her first stop was the beach (her first time ever at an ocean!). She met a lifeguard, some surfboards, and generally had a wonderful time in the sun. Then off to Trader Joes, for a taste of American markets.

See below for some fun Quicktime Quickies of her first day!

As I write this, she is relaxing in the backyard. So I'm gonna keep this short, so I can start entertaining her! Make sure to meet her this Wednesday at the Rhythm Club!!!!

We still need loads of help, so check the site for details! Click HERE

LAUGHLIN LINDY DANCE CAMP

dancefun_button.gif

The ever-fun Laughlin Lindy Dance camp is comin' up this August. Rusty'll be on hand as one of the teachers (wait till you see the list of instructors!). This camp is probably the most "affordable" of all the swing dance camps, as the $219 includes transportation, three nights in hotel, three meals, all classes and dances! Why don't we see if we can get a Lindy By The Sea gang for this one. Email: john@dancefun.com, call 310-530-0500, or check out their website HERE. Tell them, "Rusty sent me".


JIVE ACES WOW 'EM AT SUZY Q'S

Rusty and Hilary were thrilled to bring London's Jive Aces to Suzy Q's last Friday, and by the crowd (200+) reaction, so were YOU! Here's some pics of the evening. And check below for some Quicktime Quickies of the Jives. Can't wait to see those boys again!

SWING CAMP CATALINA June 5th-8th ONE MORE TIME!!!Swing Camp is simply one of the most amazing swing dance summer camps you can hope to attend. Celebrating their 10th year anniversary, we can't encourage you enough to attend! First let's talk about the location -- Catalina Island. "Twenty-six miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is awaitin' for me..." As the song goes, this island is full of rhythm and romance. Beautiful, stunning, are just two of the words that come to mind. The camp itself continues to boast a host of internationally acclaimed teachers. And the evening dances in the historic art-deco ballroom Casino will simply cause you to stop in your tracks. Remember, you can sign up for the entire weekend, or just for individual dances. Whatever you choose, just make sure you choose to at least spend some time out there with us! As with all swing dance camps, you don't need a dance partner... just come along and have a ball!

Our Operation Dance gang will be there!

Go to their website for more info www.swingcamp.com.


Swing Shift
www.swingshiftontap.com

* 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).
