WOW! WOW! WOW!

My childhood friend, Theresa Medbury, sent me this clip, and I was completely blown away by it. You'll recognize a lot of the traditional Lindy Hop moves... but it's the setting and music that makes this clip a thrill. Enjoy!

NICE NOTE FROM OUR "BALLROOM DANCERS"

For the last three months, a group of Ballroom dancers joined our Balboa series. We're really gonna miss them, and we hope they come around and always feel welcome. I got this lovely note from one couple and wanted to share it with you all:

Dear Rusty,

We are sorry we missed the last class, but we really enjoyed learning the "Balboa". It inspired us to learn more Swing and we look forward to joining you again, perhaps in the Fall. Its best for us if we can all learn and especially practice together. As you know , Bill had a partial knee replacement and is doing very well and hopefully he and Diane will be up to great swing dancing in the next few months. We wanted to thank you and your partners for making it so much fun. Please give our thanks to all the "young folks" from all us "old folks" for tolerating us and making us feel accepted.

Ed and Paula Bold

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.
