"Someone need not be perfect to be a great dancer.
Feeling a soul is more important than what the body can do"

ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT TEACHING...


Bev & Bill Roberts

There are so many thing I love about teaching swing dancing. But, I have to confess, one of them is the wonderful diversity we get -- people of all backgrounds and ages. I know I can speak for Ron and Gio when I say, we literally "fall in love" with each of you. That's why we have those goofy smiles on our faces at each class. You give that to us.

Sometimes our students bring their spouses, friends, or children who are not in the class, but who observe us in the other room. Throughout this year we have had the honor of a very interested observer (and he's become quite the swing dance expert) -- Bev Robert's husband Bill.

I asked if they would bring in a picture from their early days together, and she brought in this wedding picture from 1948!

Aren't they the most handsome couple? Then and now!!

I don't know much about Bill yet, but for anyone interested, Bev is a pilot. You go, girl!

"THE MASTER TRACK -- IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!"
NEXT 8-WEEK SERIES WITH RUSTY AND RON STARTS IN SEPTEMBER



RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW

If you would like to reserve your spot, email us asap: info@rustyfrank.com. 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!

THE TRACK SERIES

"The Track Series" was developed by Rusty Frank and Ron Campbell in 2005. "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.

The six DVD set matches the 6-month program that Rusty and Ron teach at Lindy By The Sea. Each Track is color coded and contains stand alone moves. In other words, students can choose any or all of the DVDs.

Each Track contains curriculum covering variations of the following moves: Swingouts, Charleston, Sugar Pushes, Slides, Boogie Steps, Hollywood Style, Savoy Style, Related Dances (1920s Charleston, Balboa, and Collegiate Shag), Styling, and Stop Reverses.

* 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."

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.
