"When you perform [dance]... you are out of yourself larger
and more potent, more beautiful. You are for minutes heroic.
This is power.
This is glory on earth.
And it is yours nightly."

--Agnes De Mille, New York Times, 1963

SWINGCAMP.COM -- HARVEST MOON SWINGOUT: This weekend in Pasadena is one of our most enjoyable swing dance events of the year -- The Harvest Moon Swingout. Produced by our good friends the Stevens sisters of PBDA, this event features the living legend Frankie Manning. If you've not seen him or met him yet, you better get over there this weekend.

One of the founding fathers of Swing dancing and perhaps the greatest Lindy Hopper of all time. In the 1930's, Frankie was a leading dancer and choreographer for the famous "Whitey's Lindy Hoppers." Under contract with the William Morris Agency, the troupe toured the United States, Europe and South America, spreading the excitement of this new American dance style, and introducing Swing dancing to the world. He is credited with performing the first "aerials" in Swing! In 1992 he won a Tony Award for his choreography in the Broadway hit Black & Blue, and today at age 90(!) he is still touring, still teaching, and is still an electrifying dancer and personality. You won't want to miss meeting this remarkable man!!!

* 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). Basically, we swing like a gate!


JOIN THE FUN!
BUT, WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

Many of you still don't know about our Swing Shift Rhythm Club. It's one of our best kept secrets. Now is the time to get the SSRC "above the radar."

1. Having fun: Events where swing dancers can socialize and get to know each other outside of class (vintage clothes shopping, going to a dance-related movie, dancing in the park, eating at retro restaurants before a dance, etc.).

2. Doing good deeds: Events where we bring swing dancing to hospitals, senior homes, and community events for the purpose of good deeds, entertainment, and education in the Los Angeles area.
