See you on the dance floor!

TAP FOR LINDY HOPPERS!
with Rusty Frank

I often get asked to teach tap dancing by Lindy Hoppers. I fashioned some material that is wonderfully accessible for social dancers and to really help them (YOU!) get their feet moving, while at the same time learning the basics of tap dance.

You can be a total tap beginner, or even have a little background, and you're certain to enjoy this workshop.

QUESTION:
"WILL TAP HELP MY LINDY?"

ANSWER:
"YES!"

I get asked that question often, and I can say that tap dancing will definitely help your dancing. How? It will get you moving your feet more intricately and learning some nifty syncopations that you can put in your dancing.

03-12 ~ G2 Gallery - Rusty & Gio
It's a FREE event!

Gio and I will be teaching a beginner swing dance class at this fabulous little photo gallery on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Why not make a reservation and come along and then go out for your night on the town.



03-12 ~ Palladium Event

I got this flyer and thought you all might be interested. The Palladium was one of the historic hot spots for swing dancing in the 1940s, and it looks like it's back for one night.



03-31 ~ Balboa Rendezvous

BALBOA RENDEZVOUS
DON'T MISS IT .... REALLY!

One of the all-time best events of the year. I highly, highly recommend it. This San Diego-based event is a dream. If there is any way you can make it... GO!

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.
