The Silver Belles, read about them in our Link of the Week
"I'd always used to hang out with guys between shows, eating up any tap moves they could teach me.
Dance, dance, dance.
I'd dance all day if I could"
Marion Coles, Silver Belle (widow of legendary tap dancer Honi Coles)
YES, YOU HEARD RIGHT
THE JIVE ACES ARE BACK TOMORROW NITE -- WED. MARCH 22
For those of you who missed last month's Jive's engagement, now is your chance to see what all the uproar is about. These guys are just something else. As it says in their publicity:
We couldn't be luckier, as the Jive Aces are coming back for another date at The Rhythm Club next week, March 22nd. They are putting the finishing touches on some new recordings, and they told me that life just wouldn't be complete if they didn't come back to our club (well, and Fatburgers). They are some guys!
And our MC extraordinaire will be on hand -- Mr. Maxwell DeMille!
GIO'S B-DAY PARTY AT THE RHYTHM CLUB 3/15/06
Last week was Ron's birthday, and this week's it's Gio's -- all the Rhythm Pals are accounted for. Make sure to come out and give Gio the best birthday dance possible!
Yeah, more cake!
HOORAY FOR LEVEL 1!
TAKE A LOOK AT THEM ON THE WEBSITE
Gio and I couldn't be more proud of our current Level 1 beginners. They are doing so great! I went around and snapped some pics of them in class on Sunday, and you'll see by their happy faces we just might have some new addicts!
We have urged (nudged, push, cajoled, nagged, encouraged) them to come to the Rhythm Club tomorrow nite. You'll recognize them, as they'll be the nervously smiling people in the corners. Make sure to put on your "swing angel wings" and invite them out onto the dance floor. We all remember what it was like to be a beginner -- oh, my goodness!
I am also thrilled that we once again have a child in class. She's 7 1/2 years old, and just LOVES swing dancing. Her name is Becca, and you'll see plenty of her out on the dance floor. Let's hear it for the future!

"THE MASTER TRACK -- IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!"
NEW 8-WEEK SERIES WITH RUSTY AND RON STARTS APRIL 4TH
LIMITED ENROLLMENT -- RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR APRIL-MAY SERIES
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. The Feb-Mar series has been going great, but we are already taking reservations for April-May.
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!

WORKSHOP WITH LEGENDARY SWING DANCER JEAN VELOZ!
When we think about the dancers from the 1940's who really changed the face of our dance, one dancer who readily comes to mind is the great Jean Veloz. Now in her 80's, though you'd never know it!, Jean is as vivacious as she was back in "Groovie Moovie" (1943).
We are thrilled to announce a special workshop just for you with this amazing dancer.
So mark your calendars now -- Sunday April 23rd, 11am-1pm.
