IT'S JUNE!
OUR SECOND SWING PROM DANCE


Last year's King and Queen, Mark Mendonza and Rachel Artinean

I never went to my prom, so last year's 1st Swing Prom was my first. I'll never forget it. Bill Mitchell made me a beautiful corsage. Everyone dressed up. We had such fun, that the Swing Prom tradition was set, and we are all looking forward to Swing Prom 2017.

WHAT TO WEAR?

Most importantly, have FUN! Guys, bring out your tux, bow tie, or nice suits, jackets and ties. Ladies, classy, flashy, and fun dresses. What about corsages for the ladies??? What about Prom Nerds? Come one, let's have some fun.

Of course, come along in whatever and dance the night away (you don't have to dress in the theme)

PROM QUEEN AND KING TO BE CROWNED

Oh, yeah! We're gonna vote on a Prom King and Queen!

We'll have a box at the front table, and you can put in your vote for the Rusty's Prom King and Queen, then to be announced and crowned at the band break.

PROM PHOTO BOOTH

Rebeca Diaz and Bill Mitchell are already hard at work creating our special Prom Photo Booth for your posing pleasure.

Should know your swingout to take this class. $5 for the class.

Here's their bio:

Chris and Beth both started dancing in the Los Angeles area in 1998 and have been dancing, teaching, and competing together since they met in 2004. They are greatly influenced by the vintage dance styles made popular by the Southern California dancers in the 1930s and 1940s, and had the wonderful privilege of dancing with, and learning from, many of the first-generation dancers who grew up in Los Angeles during those early years. The time they spent with these incredible dancers and the countless hours they dedicated to studying vintage footage gave them a real passion for preserving the spirit and energy of the original dance. Their love for combining modern elements with fast footwork, classic lines and nifty slides keeps them in a state of perpetual rug-cutting bliss. Some of their recent competition wins include the National Jitterbug Championships at Camp Hollywood, the International Balboa Championships at Balboa Rendezvous and the North American Championships in San Francisco.
