LET YOUR SWING FRIENDS KNOW YOU'LL BE THERE!
DRESS UP IN RED AND WHITE!
Two Valentines waiting for you at Rusty's
Who better to celebrate Valentine's day with than your Swing Dance pals!
So let's all dress up in red and white for our annual Valentine's Dance with The Fabulous Esquires Swing Orchestra.
THE FABULOUS ESQUIRES BIG BAND
DID YOU KNOW?
The Fabulous Esquires Big Band is part of The Esquire Music Foundation.
In 1958, four teenagers approached Paul Colaluca and asked for his help in forming a dance band in the likeness of Glenn Miller. Thinking the idea was a crazy one, he sent the teens off with the mission of recruiting five saxes, four trumpets, four trombones, a bass, drums, guitar and a piano. He didn't plan on seeing them again. But they returned a month later, ready to rehearse. The teens were persistent and persuasive. The rest, they say, is history!
It was Stan Kenton who suggested to Paul Colaluca that the training program become a non-profit foundation, giving many generations of students access to and training in big band swing music. The Esquire Music Foundation was formally established in 1967.

"WEDNESDAY AFTER 1ST FRIDAY
DIPS! MY FAVORITE MOVE"
WITH DAVID STOCKIN & BARBARA YEH
No wonder he's called "Dippin' Dave".... he's the best swing dance dipper at Rusty's.
Together with Barbara Yeh, who always brings the brightest smile along with her wonderful dancing, they'll bring their favorite move.... which just might include a fabulous dip!
WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW:
Partners recommended, but not required
Be prompt, if not early.
We will not take folks who walk in late to the class for safety reasons.
Come to Rusty's early and lear their "My Favorite Move."
WHAT IS "MY FAVORITE MOVE"?
This is a 1/2 hour class taught by one of our Rusty's & Lindy by the Sea regulars.
These dancers are not professional instructors (as with our Friday guest instructors), and the class will have an informal air, with the dancers sharing one of their favorite dance moves.
MY FAVORITE MOVE gives you a chance to come to the dance a little early, warm up by learning a new move, and visit with your friends before the night's dancing begins.
If you would like to share one of your favorite moves, contact me via EMAIL, and I'll put you in the calendar.

THE BEST LIVE SWING DANCE MUSIC
At Rusty's, each week we strive to present the best of swing dance music for your dancing pleasure. In realizing that dancers have varying taste in their swing music, we present a wide range of music styles from over the decades: vintage swing, Big Bands, small groups, Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll, Doo Wop, Neo Swing, West Coast Swing, and just everything in between. Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!
