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.

Politicians want to shut down the school in HERRÄNG
This would be devastating for the village and the camp during summer 2007.
It will not affect the summer to come but the future!
Please write to the politician’s email-addresses below and describe what Herräng Dance Camp means to you.
The decision will be taken on February 13th, so please email them before this date:

Fayard Nicholas, who with his brother Harold wowed the tap dancing world with their astonishing athleticism and inspired generations of dancers, from Fred Astaire to Savion Glover, has died. He was 91.

Nicholas died Tuesday at his home from pneumonia and other complications of a stroke, his son Tony Nicholas said.

"My dad put Heaven on hold and now they can begin the show," the younger Nicholas said Wednesday.
