"The Savoy [Ballroom] was just what the title said.
It was the home of happy feet.
People who came in there to dance
were out to swing."

BALBOA RENDEZVOUS
JUST AROUND THE CORNER DON'T MISS IT! -- WE'LL ALL BE THERE

One of the all-time great dance events in the world is coming up and it's right in our own backyard -- The Balboa Rendezvous. An amazing weekend of nothing but Balboa, Balboa, Balboa! It's a chance to take classes for the best teachers, dance with people from all around the globe, and mix and mingle with the "old timers" -- the one's who originally brought this dance to us! And there are classes for all levels. Click here for all the details.

To make sure you are all brushed up, we are offering a Balboa Workshop THIS coming Sunday -- two tracks -- one for beginners with Rusty, and one for experienced Bal dancers with Ron (details following).


GREAT BALBOA WORKSHOP THIS MONTH
FOR ALL LEVELS

Take a look under Workshops for this first time workshop. That's right, we've never done a workshop for both beginners and experienced Balboa dancers. Take a look, and won't you join us? Click HERE, if you want to register right now!




JEAN VELOZ & "BROTHER RAY" -- RAY PHELPS

Jean Veloz is one of every lindy hopper's favorite dancers. But you may not know she has a brother equally as fabulous. I know all the girls will love watching Jean, and I'm sure I'll be seeing some of Ray's moves on our dance floors soon!

Talk about "smooth" -- wow! Happy rewinding!!

Swing Shift
www.rustyfrank.com

* 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.
