Australians in San Diego
Author: C.R. Harm :: Posted: Wed Apr 05, 2006 8:48 pm GMT
G'day,
Chris Harm from Adelaide, Australia here. Myself and a friend are heading over to CA in about 3 weeks and we're hoping that we could find out some info on the San Diego swing scene. We are doing some work with Joel & Alison and we can't wait to dance up a storm in the states...SD is our first stop.

Also (and i guess most importantly) we were hoping that we might be able to find a host (or 2) for our 2 week stay. We are more than happy to cover any living expenses, share a double bed...or even a single if it came down to it...or help out with rent.

...what is the weather like this time of year?

Cheers,
Chris Harm

Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Tue Apr 04, 2006 2:44 am GMT

That's right, you'll get 2 nights (and over 6 hours) of swing dancing with DJs Brian, Roheven and Doug LeClair plus LIVE MUSIC by the Golden Hill Ramblers all for only $15 (a $19 value). Don't forget, Karl Strauss and The Spot are nearby so you can fill up on brewskis and frieskis before each dance. So swingaholics, do we have a...

Lindy 3 focus this session: "Families of moves": leads learn to better catergorize & lead your moves in ways that make you more confident and better able to "improvise" and be musical. We'll show you how to take 6 moves you know and think of them as 1. Follows: learn to follow based on body position and "flow" instead of trying to recognize the move - become more confident and relaxed, leaving more time for styling.
