Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Tue Feb 07, 2006 4:23 am GMT
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.

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.

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.
