GREAT DANCES AT RUSTY'S
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

We had the best time last Wednesday with the debut of The Dean Mora Quintet at Rusty's! I'm not sure that there was anyone "flying higher" than I! I couldn't stop my feet from tapping or dancing all night. This is a group we're sure to get back to our dance as soon as possible. Thank you Dean and your fabulous group of musicians, and the lovely songbird, Kayre Morrison. And thanks to all of you dancers who came out and supported live music!

And now... next week!

AND OUR NEXT FIRST FRIDAY!

LOST YOUR JOB? TOOK A PAY CUT?
DON'T BE A STRANGER!
WE'LL WORK SOMETHING OUT FOR YOU

Every now and again, people just disappear from our scene who have been regular dancers. I wonder why. Did they get married, did they move, or did they suffer some financial hit.

If it's economics, please know that you are always welcome. Don't stay away. We can work something out! Here's some options:

~ I am happy to work out trades... you could sit at the door for a bit at the Rhythm Club in exchange for the dance that night.

~ Find me at the Rhythm Club, and just pay what you can.

~ I'll give you some Rhythm Club passes until this era blows over for you.

~ And the same thing goes for all Lindy By The Sea classes!

I know that dancing really helps in hard times. So don't be a stranger! We'll work it out to meet your needs.
