HALLOWEEN PARTY NEXT WEEK AT RHYTHM CLUB
GET YOUR COSTUME READY -- YES, SWING DANCERS LOVE TO DRESS UP!



This picture is from last year's Halloween Party at Rusty's Rhythm Club, and you can see by it that everyone dresses in costume! (In case you were wondering.) I'm planning on coming as a little bit of a swing devil... what about you?

Last night in class, we told the students of the year when a bunch of the guys came dressed up as me! That was really scary. (here's a picture from back then of the wole group that came dressed up as me and Peter... my dance partner back in 1999)

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YUOR COSTUME!*

*Remember, you want to be able to dance in it. Better to have no masks (for safety)



FUN AT LINDY BY THE SEA

CELEBRATION FOR RUSTY'S INDUCTION INTO HALL OF FAME

Lindy By The Student, Bob Leone, surprised me with a big cake in honor of my induction into the Swing Dance Hall of Fame. And, boy, was I surprised. It sure made the whole affair even more special for me. Thanks, Bob!

BIG FINISH -- THAT'S A TRICK

Our Dips and Tricks class showed off their latest trick -- "The Big Finish". We had so much fun in that series, we are continuing it this series. Remember, it's open to ALL levels! And it's not too late to join.

La Segunda Bohemia. I confess, I can't read it. But it sure looks like fun!

* 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?"...
