"Great artists are people who find the way to be themselves in their art.
Any sort of pretension induces mediocrity in art and life alike."

Margot Fonteyn, 1919-1992


NEW SERIES OFF TO A GREAT START!

Our July series is off to a GREAT start!!! Sunday classes were full of enthusiastic beginners, and our Monday Balboa class was packed to the rafters. Hooray!!! Eveeryone was really enthusiastic about the new Monday location -- the historic El Segundo Masonic Lodge; so it looks like a keeper.

JULY 8TH (TO-NITE)
FIRST TUESDAY CLASS HELD AT
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS!!!

(DON'T GO TO REBEKAH LODGE!)

Just to make everything really confusing this month, the first Tuesday of this new series (July 8th) will be held at Knights of Columbus right next to the Rhythm Club in Playa Del Rey (here's the address: 8049 W. Manchester)

The good news is our Rebekah Lodge floor is being refinished! So it should stay wonderful for another two years!!

If you happen to forget and go to Rebekah Lodge on July 8th, just hop back in your car and race over to Knights of Columbus -- it only takes 5 minutes!

HARVEST MOON BALLThe Harvest Moon Ball was one of the biggest and most popular dance competitions our country has ever known. It was held in Madison Square Garden, right in the middle of Manhattan, NYC. It featured competitions in the major ballroom dances of the day, and one of the most exciting highpoints of the event was the LINDY HOP DIVISION. Wow! Did that stop the show every time. This website takes you through many of the Harvest Moon Ball years, complete with photographs fascinating historical information. Here's one for you -- Ed Sullivan was one of the popular emcees of the event! How about that?!




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).
