A NOTE ABOUT BALBOA BOOTCAMP WITH JOEL PLYS

We had such a great time with Joel at our last Friday dance, I asked him if he would do a day-long workshop for us at Lindy by the Sea. And he said, YES! So we've got him. Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 18, and sign up right away.

He's also adding a "Teacher Training Workshop" after the Bal Bootcamp for those interested. All the information follows for both workshops.

I wanted to say this about Joel's teaching. I've been doing Balboa regularly since about 2000, and when I worked with Joel for last month's class, I learned an amazing amount of new ways of looking at the dance. I would recommend to all who love Bal, to sign up for the entire day. The little details he shares will greatly benefit your dancing no matter what level you are right now.

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.
