Feeling a soul is more important than what the body can do"

WE NEED LEADERS!!!!!!!!
WORKSHOP WITH LIVING LEGEND JEAN VELOZ
THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 23 11:00AM-1:00PM
Jean Veloz, the sensational!, showing more style in her pinky than we might ever hope to know!
YES, WE STILL NEED MORE LEADERS FOR "JEAN AND DEAN WORKSHOP"!
Hey gang, we have a great sign-up for the Jean & Dean Workshop. But, we really need more guys (leaders). Seriously! We need more guys. As it stands, it's gonna be very uneven (we'll rotate aggressively, but it sure would be nice to have more leaders confirmed).
This really is one of those chances of a lifetime, friends. Jean Veloz (80 something years old) is going to be there in person! She's never done a workshop here before! She's been brought to Germany, Washington DC, but never here for teaching. When I realized this, I thought, "This is nuts! I'm gonna ask her to do a workshop at Lindy By The Sea." And, she said "YES."
So let's have a GREAT showing for her. Don't make Jean Veloz think that the boys don't care!
Remember, the workshop will be a nice even split between men's and women's styling. It's for both leaders and followers!
And, you'll be hearing from someone who was there about "back in the day" when swing WAS king.
AND, bring your camera! You won't want to miss this chance to have your picture taken with Jean Veloz!

"THE MASTER TRACK -- IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!"
NEW 8-WEEK SERIES WITH RUSTY AND RON STARTS MAY 30TH (JUNE-JULY SERIES)
LIMITED ENROLLMENT -- RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR JUNE-JULY SERIES
Rusty and Ron now have a 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 twelve students. The April-May series is fully booked, but we are already taking reservations for June-July.
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.
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, and includes a personal dvd of your work throughout the course. What a value!
Here's the first Master Track, 2006. They surprised us by dressing up for their final class.
l-r: Sally, Paul, Kiersten, Brian, Akiko, Jamie, Liz, Bill, Janet, Jeremy, Debbie, Tammy, and Jerry. (Missing: Will, home sick, boo hoo)

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 Movie" (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.
