"When people ask me about this 'little' swing resurgence, I reply: 'Do you realize this LITTLE swing resurgence has lasted longer than the original swing era!'"
We started another Sunday class last week, and, despite Super Bowl Sunday, it was packed! I'm just having way too much fun with my "job"! Thank you all for keeping this swing resurgence going."
To all our new beginners, WELCOME! Enjoy our world of dancing, music, and new friendships from the dance floor. Remember, when you are out there struggling with new moves, footwork, and concepts, we were all there with you. No one gets to pass by the beginner stage. No one popped out of the womb doing a triple step (that we know of!). So, don't be afraid of us... we know too well your struggle; we're probably still in it ourselves.
To all, I encourage: Enjoy the process. Enjoy the process of learning, of struggling, of trying... Enjoy the process, for, when truth be told, you'll always be in it. And so will we!
See you on the dance floor!

1940's GLAMOUR WORKSHOP FILLING UP!
My, time flies. But, it's true, the 1940's Glamour Workshop is THIS Saturday! I'm so excited, as I haven't done a hairstyling workshop in just about a year -- and that was in Perth, Australia! If you're on the fence about this one, (my hair's too long, too short, too curly, too straight) hesitate no longer... I've got plenty of vintage hairstyles for everyone! And look at it this wa, when's the last time you got to spend some time with a gaggle of gals; this workshop always reminds me of a good ol' fashioned slumber party... loads of giggles and fun.
And, despite our advertising that this is a 1940's glamour workshop, we will actually be covering hair and makeup from the 1920's-1940's!
I am proud and excited to be doing this workshop with Gabriela Hernandez of Besame Cosmetics. She'll be handling the make-up side of things and I'll be dilly-dallying with the hair. By the way, she'll have her cosmetics for sale, so you might want to bring your pocketbook.
The workshop is well on it's way to filling up and is limited to 25 ladies in each of the two classes. The word is out, and many from outside our classes are already signing up. So make sure that you pre-register quick if you want to attend this workshop.
Remember, you can pre-register with your Quick Stop Card, by phoning me at 310 606 5606 or on our web pre-register HERE.
AND, there are plenty of goodies that you need to bring along, so make sure you read the list carefully.
VALENTINE'S PARTY AT RUSTY'S RHYTHM CLUB
DRESS UP - VINTAGE WITH A SPLASH OF RED AND WHITE
We've got the perfect band for our Valentine's party -- Mora's Modern Rhythmists Dance Orchestra! Music just doesn't get much better than this. Dean Mora feels as though he walked right out of the 1920's and '30's, as well as his beautiful canary of song, Kayre Morrison.
Come along and join all your dancing friends for another wonderful night at Rusty's Rhythm Club

NEW SERIES -- NOT TOO LATE TO JOIN
Our new Sunday series started last Sunday, but, if you were at home or with friends watching the Super Bowl, you can still join us this coming Sunday! No need to wait until March at all. We promise we'll go over absolutely everything taught last Sunday, so you'll have no problem whatsoever catching up.
And remember, we've started our new class program and we are in the midst of the "B" tracks for Levels 1 & 2. This means, the first two weeks of class will be the same material as last series, but the last two weeks will be all brand new material! So take Level 1 and 2 again, for a good review of your six and eight count basics AND learn new material! Oh, boy!
Remember, Level 4 students, you can come back through any Level 1, 2, or 3 classes for $10/each for the entire series!
