GROOVIE MOVIE

"My friends, as you will observe there is more to this torso-tossing technique than mere terpsicorian pyrotechnics. What’s that? I wonder! Anyway, when done right, the dance is rather delectable, even though quite inexplainable. Get a load of these cats! They’re solid!"

~ Pete Smith

ANNOUNCING...
A TRIBUTE TO THE GROOVIE MOVIE

Dear friends!

This is something near and dear to my heart - Groovie Movie. When I first started learning the Lindy Hop in 1996, I remember sitting on a floor in London, watching "Groovie Movie" over and over, and over and over, and over and over. Along with just two other clips that were available to dancers at that time (Youtube wasn't even a thought) it truly was the blueprint for modern swing dancing.

That same year, I got to meet for the very first time one of the dancers from the movie - Jean Veloz. We became instant friends, and this friendship has grown over the years to something especially close.

It was Jean's idea to do an event honoring Groovie Movie out here in California (Tom & Debra of Gottaswing.com in Washington, D.C. have been holding a Groovie Movie Weekend for years). I contacted Hilary Alexander, of Camp Hollywood, with the idea of co-producing an event out here, and the rest, as they say, will soon be history!!!

EVENT TICKETS ON SALE THIS COMING TUESDAY

Here are the details, and Event Tickets go on sale starting this Tuesday!

Be the first to get your tickets, and then you'll be proud to tell everyone you know - "I was there!"

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.
