He challenges anyone to take it away from him.

Our Swing Dance Couple:
Joseph & Kristy Celebrate 2-year Anniversary
This Wednesday.

I know we've been making quite a fun noise lately about all the couples who have met through dancing. Well, one of our happy couples is celebrating their 2-year Anniversary... and they met on the dance floor at Rusty's!

So here's another good reason to come out this Wednesday - help them celebrate.

Here's what Joseph sent in to me:

It was December 13, 2006. I was still a newbie at Swing dancing. I attended the Rhythm Club Holiday Party. This was the first time I saw Kristy, she was by the piano and was looking fabulous in her black Audrey Hepburn style dress. I asked her for a dance and she said “Yes”. Being a newbie, I did mostly basic moves but Kristy was very gracious and flashing a wonderful smile. Later that evening I saw her on the dance floor. She was dancing very well and I thought to myself, “She’s an advanced dancer! I must have wasted her time with my basic moves!” From then on, I got so intimidated that I never asked Kristy for another dance. Around November 2007, almost one year later, Emily Callahan pulled me aside asked me “How come you never dance with Kristy?” I replied, “She’s too good! I'll probably waste her time!” Emily said, “Just go and asked her!” And I did. 2008, Kristy and started dating and on July 11, 2009, we got married!

Looking forward to next week!

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.
