I'm Still Recovering!

"Jives & Dollz" at Rusty's
Last Wednesday

Wow!!!!! What a night. It was simply one of those good ol' fashion roof raisers! A night for the books, that's for sure.

The Jives were in fine form, filling the room with their unique brand of frenzied joy. The Satin Dollz thrilled the crowd with their fabulous vintage song and dance numbers.

Sheila & Ian Hartley surprised the crowd in re-creating their "Janitor Geezer & Wife- Can't Dance, Can Dance" routine. What fun! Then they led us all in the UK Charleston Stroll.

As the night came to a reluctant close, The Jives did it again, and got everyone in the place jumping for joy... not to mention doing the Hora to Minnie The Moocher - a Rusty's first.

I'll not long forget that night.

Thanks to all who made the night possible: Our volunteer staff, the performers, and all of you dancers who keep this thing going by coming through the door of Rusty's week after week.

Here's to more jumping for joy!


Rusty & The Jive Aces at their annual Pilgrimage to Fatburgers prior to the show (Yes, it's actually in their contract with me!)

 


Did anyone happen to get photos and/or video of me tapping with the Jive Aces?

I would love to get a copy of any footage of my tap solo with the Jive Aces. That was a special performance for me, and I should have thought to have one of my two cameras that I had at the club in someone's hands. But perhaps someone out there did tape it. If you did, shoot me an email at rusty@rustyfrank.com

"SWING DANCING!

THE ORIGINAL SOCIAL NETWORK"

Thanks, Tim!!

  

Our Thursday newbie and swing fanatic, Tim Ames, came up with our new slogan, and soon to be t-shirt - "Swing Dancing, The Original Social Network."

We were teaching the "Swing Etiquette" portion of Level 1 this past Thursday, and somehow it all related, and Tim shouted out, "Swing Dancing - The Original Social Network." And the entire class just gasped! Perfect!!!

Thanks, again, Tim!

THE GREAT LOS ANGELES AIR RAID OF 1942
Rusty Teaching Swing Class

Join me at one of our regions most original and fun events of the year. I'll be hosting the dance class, and you can join that to show all the newbies how it's done and then enjoy the rest of this truly amazing event. Here's a bit of the story from their website:

The Fort MacArthur Museum is proud to present what has become one of our most popular signature events. The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942 is the museums celebration of one of the most fascinating and controversial events in Los Angeles History. A night when literally thousands of people both Military and Civilian were convinced that Los Angeles was being attacked from the air, and even from space!!! What really happened that night is a debate that will probably go on for years, but for those of us it's a time to remember the feeling of those early days of the World War II.

In February 1942, the realities of the second world war was just starting to become evident here is the southland. The Great LA Air Raid of 1942 is a fundraiser for the Fort MacArthur Museum and attempts to recreate the atmosphere of a 1942 social evening out, interrupted by the reality of war.

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.
