NEIL MORROW FUNDRAISER

One of our favorite bandleaders, Neil Morrow, recently had all of his instruments and sound equipment stolen. So we thought it would be nice to have a little fundraiser for him in thanks for all the dancing joy he's brought to us through his music.

Bring extra pocket money to put into the till for Neil on September 3rd at the Rhythm Club.


TUESDAY CLASSES MOVE UP A HALF HOUR
STARTING TONIGHT!

Jazz Sweet And Hot Festival It's this weekend and you won't want to miss it! And it's right at the LAX Marriott. Now what's your excuse???





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.

"How do I join?"...
