Hal Takir dips partner in Los Angeles in the 1930s! Many of you who were at Camp Hollywood may have seen Hal dancing with his wife, Marge, and didn't even know it! He was sitting over with all the other legends. Aren't we lucky to have many of these legends still with us!

ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Once a year, I take a real vacation, not one of my "work" trips (where I'm the luckiest gal in the world and get to teach lindy and tap internationally). Thanks to the fabulous Rhythm Pals, Gio and Ron, and the fabulous support team (Jessica, Glenn, Jeff, Katie, Jon, Sharlene, Peter, Nathan, Crystal, and Professor Vangor) I can actually take a vacation! Whaa hoo.
This year (actually this coming Sunday) I am going to Israel with my family for a cousins Bar Mitzvah. I'll be joining my father, my eldest brother David, his wife and three kids on a seven day trip to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. I have not been to the country since 1986, and can't wait to see the changes and advances. When I was last there, the country seemed more like a Third World place.... six day work week, no access to many of the basic amenities of life...
I also had been very involved in "Operation Moses", and had made two trips to Ethiopia myself as a small and early part of this effort. I am very eager to see how the Ethiopians have integrated into the culture there. I'll be going to museums, taking walking tours, and getting in some real quality time with my niece and nephews. My little niece is always after me to teach her more swing and tap dancing... so I imagine we'll have a whole act upon my return! Watch out! Here's a picture from our latest family reunion where Sara and I performed. Am I a proud auntie or what!
I'll see you again on Tuesday and Wednesday the 23 & 24th. Meanwhile have a great time in class and at Rusty's Rhythm Club.
