TUESDAY





This is our very own Rudy Flores! Our birthday boy this week.
What a knock-out!

He's at our club every week, taking pictures, and handing them out,
and always having lovely dances with all the girls.
Thanks, Rudy, for being such a great part of our Rhythm Club environment.

thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of
humor is just common sense, dancing. "

WINGING MY WAY HOME

I'm now at the very end of my amazing journey. I'm still in Norway... Two days to rest, then Wednesday, on the plane and wing my way home. Hopefully, you all had a great time in my absence. I can't wait to hear everything.



NEW SERIES BEGINS NEXT WEEK

Take a look at the schedule below for our upcoming Sunday and Tuesday series. Make sure to get your pre-registration discount!



THANKS AGAIN TO ALL THE RHYTHM PALS

I would never be able to go away and keep things going if it weren't for all of you. Thanks to Ron, for teaching the Tuesday nite classes (and it's not too late to join! Just show up, he'll register you). Thanks to all the Rhythm Club volunteers for keeping that night going: Jessica, Capt Fun, Julia, Nathan & Crystal "The Sweethearts of Swing", Robert "The Professor" Vangor, Mike, Jon, Jamie, Sharlene... and anyone else who pitches in.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE RHYTHM CLUB WHILE I'M GONE!!

"THE MASTER TRACK -- IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!"
NEXT 8-WEEK SERIES WITH RUSTY AND RON STARTS IN SEPTEMBER (SEPTEMBER 5)

**ONLY 2 FOLLOWER SPOTS (NO MORE LEADER SPOTS -- YOU SNOOZE... YOU...)**



RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW

Ladies, if you would like to get one of these spots.... tell Ron Campbell (ron@rustyfrank.com) If you would like to reserve your spot for a future series , email us asap: info@rustyfrank.com.


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!

Swing Shift

* 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."

THE SWING SHIFT RHYTHM CLUB (SSRC), founded in 2000 by Rusty Frank's swing dance students, The SSRC has two missions:

1. Having fun! (Fun) 2. Doing good deeds! (Philanthropy)

1. Having fun: Events where swing dancers can socialize and get to know each other outside of class (vintage clothes shopping, going to a dance-related movie, dancing in the park, eating at retro restaurants before a dance, etc.).

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.

The SSRC is a volunteer club open to the public and the events are organized by its members. There are no dues. Members can attend as many or as few events as they wish.
