THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS
Last week, I finally got "brave" enough to post my childhood dance recital. It's only taken me about 10 years to get the guts. But you all were so adorable and kind with your comments, I thank you.
I was trying to prove my point that no one is a "natural born" dancer -- and I thought, what better way than to show this clip. I certainly wasn't a natural born dancer, and there's the proof.
If you happened to miss the clip... here it is again. Thanks to my dad for having his camera at the ready!
RUSTY'S DANCE RECITAL -- AGE 7
SPEAKING OF VIDEO CLIPS...
YouTube has this great new feature whereby you can make "players" for your website. Once again super-helper Ji Han, came to my rescue and showed me how to set it up on my website. Now it's easier than ever to look at the clips, and for me to keep adding to the players. So, stay tuned for more soon.
Lindy Hop Clips
Here are various Lindy Hop clips from our school (Lindy By The Sea) our club (The Rhythm Club) and other fun related events.
Here are a bunch of clips from over the years of me tapping solo and with wonderful tap partners.
Ondrej Havelka Clips
This is my friend from Prague, Czech Republic, who creates "old movies". He is the leader of Ondrej Havelka and His Melody Makers. I am the self-appointed President of his U.S. Fan Club! I hope you love these clips as much as I do.
JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP
Students to the rescue! Heather Ellison suggested, and then was terrific enough, to set up a Lindy By The Sea Facebook Group. Anyone can join and this a place for Lindy By The Sea members.
If it's your birthday this week, just let us know at the Rhythm Club so you can get your birthday dance!

calendar so please contact him at
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.
