We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance.

Can you believe it?! The Nathalie and Yuval Workshop is THIS weekend! August 8-10th.

Two of the most exciting Lindy Hoppers in the history of the dance, Nathalie & Yuval haven't taught a workshop for us since 2000! Many of you might not even have seen them yet. So just trust us that they are, in a word, phenomenal. (They'll be doing a performance at The Rhythm Club this Wednesday, August 6th, and you can see for yourself.)

Unlike previous workshops where they focused on aerials, this time they have a truly diverse set of classes -- something for everybody.

All the information up on our site for you to peruse and also to register, so click HERE!

ENCORE! BRING A BUDDY MONTH
CONTINUES THROUGH THE SUMMER!

Our "Bring a Buddy" was so successful, that we are going to extend it through the summer! That's right, "Bring a Buddy" to any Level 1 class and you get the Level 1 series for FREE! That means your friend can take the class with a pal, and you get to show how fast you pick up this stuff! (Not to mention that you get a review of your basics, or you could even go through the class as the other role!)

So bring a buddy this summer -- and you get the Level 1 series for FREE!

See ya in class!

FEATURED CLASS -- MORE BALBOA

The cries were "More Balboa! More Balboa!" Our job is to keep you all happy on the dance floor, so we are more than willing to ablige. More Balboa features more and more great Balboa variations.

"What if I missed the first Balboa series?" You may be asking yourself if you can join this new series. And the answer is YES! We'll once again take the first session to review the basic and move on from there with new variations. Come along and join the fun. You'll love Balboa, as it gives you a whole vocabulary of swing moves for faster music.

THANKS MICHAEL D'ANGELO!

Our very own Michael D'Angelo filled in as a special Rhythm Pal this past Sunday and Monday to assist Rusty in teaching the Lindy by the Sea classes. He did a great job. In Level 3, he imparted his personal experiences as a leader to the fellows, and greatly encouraged them on their own "lindy journies". Thanks, Michael! You're the best!!!

NATHALIE AND YUVAL PERFORMING
AT RHYTHM CLUB THIS WEEK!

Don't miss this Wednesday at the Rhythm Club! Nathalie and Yuval will be doing a special performance just for us! Two of the greatest lindy hoppers ever, these two just won Showcase and Team division at Camp Hollywood. Wow! Wait till you see them!!

SWING SHIFT FLIERS FUNDRAISER A SMASH SUCCESS!

Last week, The Rhythm Club was host to a fundraiser for the Swing Shift Fliers, Rusty's performance team. You all really kicked in, and (drum roll, please), $440 was raised!!!! You bought tickets to taxi dance with the kids, you threw in money for a "money dance", you bought raffle tickets, and you bought goodies from the bake sale! It was a great night - and the energy was flying high.

Special thanks to Teresa Whitworth for getting the donation of the night's stay at the beatufiul Beach House in Hermosa! And congratulations to our lucky winner, Chris Hom (who also won the trivia contest -- Bob Hope's boxing name.

MORE LIVE MUSIC AT THE RHYTHM CLUB!

I am very excited to announce a new format for The Rhythm Club. Starting this month, instead of alternating between bands and djs weekly, I will be having a DJ the first Wednesday of every month and then bands EVERY week following.

The atmosphere at the Rhythm Club has simply been sky rocketing every time bands are there playing their hearts out. And what an appreciative crowd of dancers!

I hope you all enjoy this new format, and please let me know your favorite bands.

See you on the dance floor!

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).
