Miss Hilary Alexander
Let's Congratulate Her This Wednesday at Rusty's!

Lindy Hopper, singer, producer, and all-around grand gal, Hilary Alexander, is due with her first child at the end of this month.

This Wednesday, at Rusty's, she'll be performing at her LAST gig until after little Bobby makes his appearance.

Join me in making this gig a terrific one for her! Come along to Rusty's THIS Wednesday and hear her sing as lead canary with Jonathan Stout and His Campus Five.

RSVP HERE on Facebook!

And... make sure to let every one know.

 

 

A Little Bit About Hilary

I first met Hilary way back in 1998, right at the peak of the Lindy Hop resurgence. My first memory of her is at the Derby. She was always dressed perfectly vintage and her dancing was joyful, smooth, and stylish.

Over the years, Hilary and I have become friends, first through long discussions about what it's like to be a promoter on this scene, and then through shared interests, such as documentaries, hiking, food, and animals... I have learned over these years what a truly impressive woman she is.

Hailing from New York, she came out to California and began swing dancing as a way to meet new people. "I lived here for three years, had a good job, but realized I didn't have one friend. L.A. was just a hard place to meet people." But all of that changed when she started going to the Derby. She quickly became a vital part of the Hollywood Style swing dance crowd - a group of dancers known for their dance style and vintage dress style.

Then, she started one of the most ambitious dance camps in the world - Camp Hollywood. From the get go, it was a resounding success, attracting thousands of dancers to an annual weekend camp and National Jitterbug Competition. This year we celebrate her 15 Year Anniversary!

As if that weren't enough, she showed us more of her talent when she became the lead vocalist of Jonathan Stout's Campus Five, bringing her truly vintage sound to our swing dance scene world-wide. They now have three CDs to their name.

And... if that weren't enough, she decided it was time to start a family. She's doing it on her own, and the bouncing baby boy is due at the end of the month.

* 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.
