FEATURED CLASS -- "SECRET AGENT MAN"! PERFORMANCE ROUTINE
TONITE (yep, TONITE) we start a brand new series of Tuesday classes, including our ever-popular Track (it's "Yellow" this month), and.... drum roll please "drrrrrrrmmmmmmmrrrrmmmm":
"Secret Agent Man" -- Performance Routine Class (Featured Class).
The "Secret Agent Man" class was one of our most popular routines classes ever. Choreographed by yours truly, Rusty & Ron, this fun and easy routine was a big hit.
TAKE A LOOK LAST YEAR'S CLASS PERFORMING THE ROUTINE!:
Using your basic Lindy Hop material, and some very cool variations, this routine is not only great fun, great exercise, but also a chance to bump your dancing up to the next level.
How? (you ask) Well... by learning a choreography, and repeating it again and again, you get an opportunity to work on your specific styling and positioning (things that usually get pushed out the window when you are social dancing, as you are busy thinking of the next move [men] or busy following [women]).
And, for those interested, we perform the routine at the Rhythm Club in front of all our friends and family! (not a class requirement, just personal choice)
Come along and join us! (You must have completed Sunday classes to join this series, or get special permission from Rusty/Ron.)
Spread the word!

"THE MASTER TRACK -- IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!"
NEW 8-WEEK SERIES WITH RUSTY AND RON STARTS MAY 30TH (JUNE-JULY SERIES)
ENROLLMENT FULL -- RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR THE NEXT SERIES
If you would like to reserve your spot, email us asap: firstname.lastname@example.org. For the next Master Track series. Contact us soon!
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 June-July series is fully booked, but we are already taking reservations for September-October.
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.
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: Eric, Annie, Jamie, Tammie, Shannon, Clara, David, Akiko, Scott, Jerry. (Missing: Eric & Liz, boo hoo)
