Firehouse/Jitterbox 2fer passes now available!
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Wed Feb 15, 2006 2:58 am GMT
Can't decide between going to the Firehouse or to the Jitterbox this week? Why not come to both! Now dance both Thursday AND Friday night for one NEW LOW PRICE -- $10/adult, $8/stud. under 21 (Firehouse classes not included)!

First off, thank you to those of you who have supported both the Firehouse and the Jitterbox in the past. As you know, I've tried to give the Firehouse and the Jitterbox dances completely different musical vibes/DJs in order to please swing dancers of all musical tastes. Now, to thank those of you that already support both venues and to encourage more of you to check out the Jitterbox, I am now offering NEW Firehouse/Jitterbox 2fer passes! You can now attend both dances this week for one LOW fee of $10 ($8 for students under 21). For the price of a single movie, you can dance for over 6 hours...
Happy Valentines Day!!!

Hi Everybody!

Long time no swing!
Just wanted to announce the arrival of little Parker @ 6lbs 12oz. Mom and baby are doing great and should be home from the hospital on Friday.

Also, we'll be moving down to Pasadena in April, so hopefully we'll get to see our dear swing friends soon.

Andy, Emmy, Grayson, and Parker

In just a few days, our special weekend with Frankie and Norma begins -- capped off by a rockin' Saturday night dance with SF's very own Stompy Jones at the beautiful Champion Ballroom!

Yes, the time has come, the Living Legends of Swing weekend is here. I'm so excited to have the two surviving original Whitey's Lindy Hoppers here in SD in just a matter of days. I hope to see you at all the classes and dances this weekend, but if your schedule does not permit you to attend the whole thing...PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be sure to come on out for our special Saturday night dance event with Stompy Jones.

San Francisco-based Stompy Jones is nationally renowned for their jumpin' rhythm, wailing improvisations, and relentless energy. They've been driving up the cultural temperature in California with their hip charm, retro style, and explosive stage show. These journeymen of jump have been playing boogie-woogie, vintage jazz and...

Special Charleston Rueda Performance (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Feb 02, 2006 2:08 am GMT

Come to the Firehouse tonight and watch the world debut performance of the Charleston Rueda with the SwingOrama Waxy Taxy Dancers. No, this is not the slow Lindy Rueda -- the Charleston Rueda is danced to the energetic "Bill's Bounce" by the Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra and is fast, furious and fun! It is a partner-trading dance I choreographed in order to teach the almost-forgotten partner Charleston basics (side, crossover, face-to-face, shadow) in a fun and memorable way. Although we have 5 couples performing tonight, it can be danced with any number of couples -- in fact, the more the merrier.

The Waxy Taxy dancers have been working super-hard over the past few weeks to get the dance up to speed, and a few of them have never performed in front of their peers before, so come on out and cheer for your friends. They are really excited to perform for the first time tonight.

The Waxy Taxy...
