IT'S JUST A LOVELY TIME TO DANCE

Maybe it's because summer is lingering on for us here in Southern California. Maybe it's because we can see our economy turning up. Maybe it's because we just realize how much joy music and dance brings into our life.

Whatever the reasons, it's just a lovely time to dance.

Our classes are thriving, the club is going strong, and the energy is utterly wonderful.

My thanks go to all of you who keep our scene going.

You keep a smile in my heart!

See you on the dance floor!

SPECIAL ON PRIVATE LESSONS WITH RUSTY

Have you ever wanted to take a private lesson with Rusty? It's one of the best ways to get a dancing "tune-up."

Normally $80/hour (for one or two people), there's now a special package:

          $80 for one lesson

          $75/ea for two lessons

          $70/ea for three lessons

Remember, you can share this lesson with another person. If you signed up for three lessons, they would only be $35 each! What a bargain.

Call me at 310 606 5606 to set yours up!


LindyCircle.com Let's take a "vacation" and see what's going on in the UK. There's great historic information on this site, too. Take a gander.

* 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!
