NOVEMBER -- ANOTHER GREAT MONTH OF SWING DANCE ACTIVITIES!
AERIALS WORKSHOP -- NOVEMBER 19TH -- 11AM-1PM
Neil Morrow and Memphis 54 Thanksgiving Eve, November 22nd. In the past you have been dark on this night, and a lot of us have had to scramble for a place to go to and dance. I am glad you are having Neil back and are open that night.
How about a Holiday-Good ol Rock & Roll, 50's night. Any one of the above or combination would be nice. It would be fun to dress up accordingly, or come as your favorite 50's singer or movie star. i.e. Johnny Cash, James Dean, Buddy Holly, Elvis, Patsy Cline, etc.etc.
This idea is pretty far out, but an added benefit of promising to burn at least 300-600 calories/aerobic and or weight loss prior to the Thanksgiving feast, if everyone danced most if not all of the dances that night. As you know, Neil plays a lot of high energy songs, and sometimes plays tunes one right after another without a break.
If you have some ideas for theme nites, email 'em on over to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'M GONNA BE HOOFIN' WITH A TAP-LEGEND!
Many of you know that tap dancing was my first dance (started when I was little 6-year old). I don't get that many l local opportunities to perform in shows that are open to the public, but here's one right in our neck of the woods -- Santa Monica.
I'll be dancing with one of my tap dance heroes (and legends) -- Miriam Nelson. Miriam has appeared in six Broadway shows, starting in 1939!, going on to a tremendous career as Hollywood choreographer (she even choreographed the opening day of Disneyland and two Oscar shows!).
Miriam and I will be performing in the Saturday show only (as I have to teach classes on Sunday afternoon). I sure hope some of you can make it.
All the proceeds go to benefit the Los Angeles Jazz Society's Mentorship Program. So have fun and do a good deed!
