Swing & Lindy Hop
Brings Us All Sunshine!

Let's Help The Jives Hit a Million

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just need to take a break from the news - it makes one feel the world is spinning out of control. (I'm always waiting for the "Good News Channel").

So, when The Jive Aces came out with their latest Youtube movie - Bring Me Sunshine - I felt they really said it all.

Our swing dancing and music really does bring us needed sunshine and life!

Let's help them get a million hits on their Youtube link. And it's really a million hits for what we love.

I've put their clip, as the Clip of the Week.

By the way, YOU all bring me the sunshine I need!



See you on the dance floor!




""Bring me sunshine, in your smile,

Bring me laughter, all the while

In this world where we live there should be more happiness

So much joy you can give to each brand new bright tomorrow

Make me happy, through the years,

Never bring me, any tears

Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above

Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love!"

 

~composer Arthur Kent, with lyrics by Sylvia Dee.

In Case You Missed It Last Week:

Rusty, Ron, & LBS Tuesday Nite Students featured on El Segundo TV!

Back in January of this year, El Segundo TV came on over to see what we're up to. The TV program is called "Insight" - and we became a featured segment.

The seven minute segment features an interview with me, and then some fun with our Tuesday night class. They interviewed a few students and showed all of us dancing up a storm.

Thank you all for really showing the fun of what we do!

JACK & JILL WORKSHOP
Click HERE for info and registration

We have so many students who have been entering Jack and Jill contests, and many more who want to, that we knew it was time to do our fabulous and fun workshop.

Whether or not you'll ever compete, this workshop will give you great tips on bringing your social dancing up to the next level.

As Jack and Jill contests are basically one big fun social dance, and you are judged on "The Three Ts - Timing, Teamwork, and Technique" - this workshop will focus on all those essential parts of swing dancing... PLUS some great tips on how to have a chance of staying in that contest longer.

Ron and Rusty both have loads of experience on both sides of the contest spectrum - both as competitors and judges, respectively. They know what the judges are looking for, and just how to enjoy the contest.

Continuing on with Balboa for May... it's just too much fun. (And you're just getting it!)

Balboa today is commonly used as a general term for dances that originated in Southern California during the 1920s and 1930s. It is a form of swing dance that started as early as 1915 and gained in popularity in the 1930s and 1940s.

The art of Balboa is in the subtle communication between the lead and follow, including weight shifts, which most viewers cannot see. As a result, Balboa is considered more of a "dancer's dance" than a "spectator's dance".

Balboa is danced to a wide variety of tempos. Because the basic step takes up such a small space, Balboa can be danced to fast music (over 300 beats per minute). Balboa is also danced to slow music (under 100 beats per minute), which allows more time for intricate footwork and variations.

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.
