COMMUNIQUE
Need dancing? Can't afford it? Then it's FREE

DANCING

Dancing is like untying
the taut strings of of everyday life
the tension falls softly
from shoulders to
drop unnoticed to the floor

freedom
freedom from the caged mind
freedom from the caged thoughts
freedom from the demands of phone
of computer, of people and deadlines
for one hour
two hours
three hours

driving there
following the velvet road,
the velvet black tongue
black asphalt tongue
lapping, lapping each being into the music
and entreating them to join

dancing

~Gabrielle

William & Maeva - Embrace The "Silly"

In class, I often say one of the things I love most about Lindy Hop is it's Silly Factor. There are so many crazy moves, but underlying the whole dance is just this quircky and fun attitude. I love to try to pass that on that attitude and tell the students to "embrace the silly."

Here's a great example!

abcStores.com Last time I was in Hawaii, I was able to get these fantastic, life-like, flowers. I always get asked where I got them, and then see faces fall when I saw Hawaii. But now I saw that you can order them online. For the gals doing the Vintage Hair Workshop, these are just the glamour-accessory.

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.
