Welcome back,
"Rusty's Rhythm Report"!

You all have Dorothy Morris to thank on this one. Over the past five months, she kept asking, "When are you going to start the newsletter, Rusty's Rhythm Report, again? I had gotten so swamped at the end of the year, that I let it fall by the wayside, and when no one noticed (or let me know that they noticed) that I had stopped it... I thought, "Well, that's something I can let go of." But, Dorothy just wouldn't stop encouraging me to bring it back. I figure when one person speaks up, you are really hearing from many more.

So, Dorothy, here it is!

And, as Citizen Kane had his newspaper motto, I also have mine. I pledge to do my best to continue to inform and inspire all of you dancers out there.

Lindy by the Sea Students
Gets a Surprise Visit from "Lil' Mo"

What a surprise! All the Lindy by the Sea beginners got a surprise visit from one of our very favorite band singers, Morris Everett aka "Lil' Mo."

He came by Lindy by the Sea on Thursday to drop off some postcards and posters for his upcoming gig at Rusty's with his band, "Lil' Mo & The Unholy 4" (making their Rusty's debut) - Wednesday, March 7th.

He also let all the beginners know how wonderful it is when bands get a loud applause and cheering from the dancers after each song. We always teach our beginners to be responsive, and it was nice to hear it from a performer directly.

Lil' Mo treated both classes with acapella serenading, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, and Danny Boy. I happen to get my camera out for the second song, and you can see and hear it here:

Thanks, Mo, for stopping by! I know you made some new fans who can't wait to see you perform this coming Wednesday at Rusty's.



See you on the dance floor!

* TUESDAY'S FEATURED CLASSES *

#1 ~ DANCERS' CHOICE

In this class, your wish is our command. Is there a move you've seen out there and just don't quite know how to do it? We'll now is your chance. This class is always loads of fun... used to go under the name of "Level 4"' -- now "Dancers' Choice."

#2 ~ BALBOA

Come learn the dance that every swing dancer around the world now knows and loves - The Balboa. A great dance for the faster songs... an easy basic and fabulous for inserting into your Lindy. Balboa originated in Southern California back in the 1920s and 1930s.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. This is an all-levels class; we'll be continuing on from our first series. So if you have some practice with these movies, come on and join us: Basic, Come Around, Chevrons, Walks, Throw Out (aka Swing Out).

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.


Email me or call 310 606 5606. I'll do everything I can to keep dancing in your life.
