Swing Time Newsletter — Tuesday JUN 1st 2010
This Friday, June 4th, experience the hot swingin' roots & rockabilly of The Cadillac Bombers, LIVE at the Gulfport Casino! Not your ordinary rockabilly band, The Cadillac Bombers bring a diverse mix of sounds & instrumentation, from bass to banjo, guitar to washboard. Since half the band members are longtime swing dancers, not only do they know their dance music, but you've probably danced with someone in the band! Join us this Friday! (details below)
Sam & Carleene perform "At the Hop" at the Swing Dance USA Championship Showcase, last Saturday 5/29/2010 at the St. Petersburg Coliseum. (See the video!) We'll be teaching this original Swing Time choreography starting Tuesday July 6th in our upcoming 8-week course series at 1st Dance Studio.
Balboa Lessons start this Wednesday, June 2nd at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night and continue every Wednesday in June! This Wednesday, June 2nd, in the 6-7pm Bonus Lesson, learn the Balboa basics and fundamentals plus how to travel and turn in Balboa. The remaining Wednesdays in June, we'll spend the first 15 minutes reviewing/reinforcing the basics, and cover a different theme (set of related moves and steps) each time. Anyone can start or jump in any week; but take all five weeks for the maximum benefit.
