THE MASTER TRACK
There are a couple of spots open in our upcoming series
MAYBE IT'S FOR YOU!

t
Master Track Jan 2010 sigh over Ron!

If you are interested in taking your dancing to the next level by focusing in on your personal lindy styling, and you've gone at least 1/2 way through our Tuesday nite Track course, than this just might be the class for you! And we've got room for a couple more leads and follows.

The eight-week course begins on Tusday, August 23, and is from 9-10pm each week. More info below.

Master Track Jan 2010 give Rusty a lift!

 

INTERESTED? CONTACT RUSTY ASAP


MASTER TRACK DESCRIPTION

This eight-week course, developed by Rusty Frank and Ron Campbell, is designed for people who want to bring their dancing to the next level. The focus of the program is on musicality, styling, and individual development. Class size is limited to twelve students, six leaders and six followers.*

Each week, Rusty and Ron work with each of the students individually and as a group in a series of exercises and challenges. The students are filmed each week, and the footage is studied as a group (in Lindy By The Sea's traditional upbeat, encouraging, and friendly environment) to examine individual areas of goals and progress. At the end of the eight week course, each student is presented with a DVD of their own dancing to track improvement and set goals for future development.

This course will start up every eight weeks. The total cost for all eight classes is $100/per student, including the personalized DVD.

*Students should be versed in the Lindy By The Sea curriculum prior to this joining this course (Levels 1-3 and at least half of the Track).

Letters from "Master Track" students:

Rusty/Ron,

I have been dancing in the Lindy scene for more than eight years and your Master's class is far and away the best class I've ever taken. I recommend this class to anyone who is serious about becoming a great dancer.

Thanks to both of you for making it such a success.

Scott Giordano


Hi Rusty & Ron,

I want to thank you for coming up with the "Master Track." I look forward to coming to class every week. I love music and I love to dance. I have a new appreciation for the music now and you have taught me how to dance. Yes dance, not just going from one move to the next, but having fun with the music and my dance partner. You have replaced that bored look on my dance partners face with a big smile. Thank you. Thank you.

Johnny Crawford Dance Orchestra
At The Cicada Club

If Johnny Crawford Looks Familiar... well...
He is one and the same - The Rifleman's Son...

Johnny Crawford has had a love for vintage dance music his entire life. When I first moved back to Los Angeles in 1992, he had started his dance orchestra, and it was a joy to hear his weekly gigs. Really a highlight of my week!

Now you can hear his Dance Orchestra at the swank Cicada Club. You'll truly feel like you're in an old Art Deco movie!

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.
