(I just had to do it in honor of our first rain of the season!)



SIngin' In The Rain

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I'm happy again!
I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain!


lyrics by Arthur Freed and music by Nacio Herb Brown, published in 1929

REFRESHING RAIN - LET'S DANCE

If there is anything that ever makes me feel like running outside and dancing it's rain! Maybe because I grew up on all those old movies where Gene Kelly or Shirley Temple or Maurice Chevalier always seemed to be happily dancing in it. Who knows? All I can tell you is that one of my prized childhood possessions was the yellow rain slicker and hat and galoshes. Oh how I wish I had a picture of me outside in the rain back then dancing around in all the big puddles. This one above will just have to do.

DON'T MISS RUSTY'S RHYTHM CLUB TONIGHT!

So won't you please join me tonight at the Rhythm Club? I know it's tempting to stay home and cuddle by the fire. But there's gonna be a big band waiting just for you!

Come on, let's dance!

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!


Vintage Fashion Expo People often ask me where I get my swell vintage clothes. One of the greatest treasure chests for us is the Vintage Fashion Expo... and it's THIS Saturday and Sunday in Santa Monica. Make sure to print out your $5 off coupon!

* 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!
