Jamie!... Swing Etiquette ???
"Thou shalt not talk on thy cell phone whilst dancing!"
~ Swing Etiquette #542
(In all fairness, Jamie was giving Lisa directions to where we were all dancing at the Richmond Street Fair.
Debbie, our birthday girl this week at the Rhythm Club, seems to be taking it all in stride.)
RICHMOND STREET FAIR -- FUN FUN FUN
THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO CAME OUT AND DANCED...
WE MADE A GREAT SHOWING
(Take a look at our scrapbook HERE)
Despite the fact that the stage trailer broke down on its way to the fair, and we had to dance under the sun on the pavement, Saturday's Richmond Street Fair was great fun. We had about 20 dancers show up from past, present, and future (!), and dance. Ron and I gave a brief lesson to some willing participants, and then we just rounded out the hour by social dancing. Many passer by-ers eagerly took one of our flyers stating the age-old phrase, "I've always wanted to swing dance!".
Thanks to everyone who came to the Fair, these kinds of swing exposure really make a difference and bring in new people for years down the road.
A highlight for all of us was the "Cell Phone" incident. There we are and suddenly Debbie Bowen is hollering, "What about THIS for swing etiquette!" -- and there's Jamie on his cell phone while dancing with her! That was a first for me... I've just never seen anyone on a cell phone and dancing at the same time. As we mentioned above, in fairness, Jamie was giving Lisa directions to where we were dancing (which was hard to see because of the lack of stage). It sure made for a good laugh.
Thanks to Yves for capturing the moment! He's becoming our resident photographer, looks like. He was the one who also took those wonderful pictures on the Seine, Paris. He's got that dancer's eye for photography.

USC SWING CLUB'S RHYTHM CLUB FIELD TRIP TOMORROW NITE
We've been teaching Lindy Hop over at USC since 1999, and this year's classes is one of the biggest yet, thanks to a terrific group of officers who are doing a sensational job. One of the activities they sponsor is to get those students out dancing.
This week (tomorrow nite), they'll be coming to the Rhythm Club for their very first visit.
You'll know them, they'll be the one's standing nervously in the back! Put those wings on, all you "Swing Angels" and get 'em out of the floor. Remember, if you've only been dancing for a couple months, you look like an expert to beginners!!! Here's your chance.

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!
