LOSING A FRIEND, LOSING A LEGEND
As you now know, our dance legend and friend, Fayard Nicholas, passed away very peacefully at home last night at 8:20pm. If you would like to read about him and what we have been up to, click HERE. He was such a friend to all of us dancers. And it was such a treat that he was at our Katrina Fundraiser in September last year. I know that those of you who met him will never forget him.
I am trying to make sure that his beautiful and loving wife, Katherine, will be okay these next few months... so if you have a bit of spare change to send her way to help with hospital bills and just getting on her feet... you can make a donation through The Fayard Nicholas Fund to her by clicking on the button below. I thank you in advance. I have known Katherine since I was 11 years old... and she has been more than a saint to Fayard. Now I am so happy we can help her.
SAVE THE DATE -- VALENTINES RHYTHM CLUB PARTY -- FEBRUARY 15TH
"The Track Series" was developed by Rusty Frank and Ron Campbell in 2005 for the enthusiastic Lindy Hopper. "We wanted a program that included just about every move a Lindy Hopper would want to know!" It's turned out to be a sensational program, so much so, that Lindy By The Sea students insisted Rusty & Ron make correlating DVDs. See more below.
Rusty and Ron are introducing a brand new series for those who want to take their dancing to the next level. The course, entitled "The Master Track - It's All About You" is limited to fourteen students, and there are still two leader spots available for Feb-Mar series.
The eight-week course focuses on your own dancing. Each week, Rusty and Ron will be working with each of the students individually and as a group in a series of exercises and challenges. The students will be video taped each week, the tapes will be studied as a group (in Lindy By The Sea's traditional upbeat, encouraging, and friendly environment) to examine individual areas of goals and progress. At the end of the eight week course, each student is presented with a dvd of their own dancing to track improvement and continue with on-going skills.
The eight-week course is open for enrollment for the April-May series (first come first serve). If you would like to reserve your spot, email us asap: firstname.lastname@example.org
This course will start up every eight weeks. The total cost for all eight classes, and the dvd is $100/per student. What a value!
A perennial favorite with Lindy Hoppers world-wide, 1920's Charleston is a perfect dance to segue in and out of Lindy Hop when the going gets fast!A perennial favorite with Lindy Hoppers world-wide, 1920's Charleston is a perfect dance to segue in and out of Lindy Hop when the going gets fast!

Introducing a brand new Track -- Silver! Last year, when we introduced The Track, we realized that the four month series just wasn't enough, so we've introduced two more months of the Track for 2006 (Orange - which we are now completing - and Silver). You can find all the information on our website HERE
