NEW SERIES THIS WEEK: Our new June Lindy Hop swing dance series begins next week! Sundays, June 8th, Mondays, June 9th, and Tuesdays, June 10th.

FEATURED CLASS: MORE HOLLYWOOD! That's right, due to countless requests, we will feature Hollywood Style moves for an entire month for our Featured Class. There are so many terrific moves that you will learn, re-learn, or improve, including the Quickstop, Switches, Hollywood Swing Out variations, Sugar Push variations, Rhythm Circles, etc. This is Level 3 and up (you should have completed Level 2)

A NOTE FROM ACROSS THE POND:

Rusty I really do think that the time has come when you grasped the nettle and moved from having Lindy BY the sea to Lindy IN the sea!

Think of it! Lots of happy splashing, period cozzies (swimming costumes), and no women saying "Don't dance with that guy, he's really wet!"

Coming soon: The Atlantis classes - Lindy UNDER the sea!

Much love.

Andrew.

What a great contest last week! Professor Vangor outdid himself with a terrific contest whereby you had to match the birth name to the performance name of swing artists. Our lucky (and very smart) winner was (drum roll, please) Mr. Will Ryan.

Here are the correct answers (on left), and Will's answers (on right). How did you do?

Remember, Professor Vangor's Swing Trivia Contest is held EVERY week at the Rhythm Club when we feature live music. Hold on to your hats, cowboys, for next week's rootin' tootin' contest!

Phew!!!!! On the site-seeing circuit she has been to the Venice Canals, Venice Beach, Hollywood, Disneyland, The Magic Castle, The Huntington Gardens, and tonight she will step out at Paladino's. Wow!

Friday Venice - Victor Minjares and Rusty. Friday Suzy Q's - The Professor Robert Vangor. Saturday Disneyland - Alaina and Doeri, Victor & Melissa, and the rest of the gang who showed up for dancing that night, Sunday hiking and 3rd Street - Natasha, Skippy, Jon.

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".

ESPADRILLES.COM This one is for the girls! Summer is just around the corner, so time to get those comfy dance shoes in order. Espadrilles have long been favorites for swing dance gal. Back to the 1930's we've seen photos of lindy hoppers attired in just such footwear. Here's a site that came our way that is just loaded with a variety for you. Remember, you can make any comfortable shoe into a perfect swing dance shoe by having dance suede or leather put on the sole. Happy shopping!


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).
