Dancers needed for May 6th
Author: yabork :: Posted: Sat Apr 29, 2006 11:34 am GMT
Hello you Dancers

I have a dance opportunity. A friend of Danielle's Amy Vickerman is looking for four dance couples for an event on May 6Th, 7-10PM at the Loews's Hotel Coronado. A Big Band will be playing and free dinner and drinks will be provided to the couples. The couples need to dress in USO/40's vintage dress. San Diego is entertaining convention organizers trying draw more conventions to the city.

Kendra and I
Sal and ??????
One or two more couples needed. Amy needs the names of the additional couples by Monday to be printed in the programs.

DJ Peter Flahiff at the Firehouse! (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Tue Apr 25, 2006 3:09 am GMT
Peter Flahiff, house DJ at the famous Atomic Ballroom and all-around great guy, is driving down all the way from OC to be our special guest DJ this Thursday. Peter actually called me last week asking to DJ, because he loves the Firehouse (...and the Firehouse loves him back). Since he's driving all this way, he'll be DJing the "primetime" slot from 10-11p (and dancing the rest of the time). So stop on by and get a taste of Atomic right here in SD!

For those of you not familiar with Peter, here's an excerpt from his bio taken directly from

Peter Flahiff has taught, performed and DJ'ed at swing dance camps and venues all over the country and around the world. He counts among his past instructors and teachers: Frankie Manning, Ryan Francois, Marcus and Baerbl, Audrey Wilson and members of the top Swedish Lindy Hop performance team The Rhythm Hot Shots. He has also been fortunate to...

Firehouse this Fri. Apr. 21st (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Wed Apr 19, 2006 3:56 pm GMT

Looking for something fun to do this Friday, but your weekly student budget is down to zero...then look no further. As a former "starving student", I know what it's like to have to choose between going out dancing and eating your next meal. So this Friday, Apr. 21st, I invite all "starving students" (under 21) to come out to the Firehouse to dance for FREE. Just print out this a copy of this post and bring your valid student ID and you get into the dance & the lesson for's that simple! Remember, EVERYONE IS WELCOME, so please feel free to forward this letter to your fellow "starving student" friends.

This Friday, we have a ton of swing dancing fun in store for you....
