San Diego Vintage Dance Week, 23 - 29 Jul 2006
Author: rmandra :: Posted: Mon Feb 20, 2006 6:27 pm GMT

We are sponsoring a Vintage Dance Week here in San Diego during the last week in July. During the last workshop with Norma Miller and Frankie Manning, a video showed Richard Powers, a noted dance historian from Stanford Univeristy, talking about Norma Miller. He will be one of the main teachers for our dance week. We're still working on our website, but preliminary info can be found at: By the way, my wife, June, is in the center of the picture shown at that website (and above).

I was going through cleaning out all the questionable new usernames like I do each day and ran across a new one with this in the signature... I know some of you are looking for something to do tonight so I am posting it..

Great Live Swing Music by King Biscuit Revue - 8 piece Swing Band! Saturday, Feb 18 - Downtown Supper Club in Riverside CA (6th & Main) 8:30 - 12:30 - No cover! Great Food! Great Music! Great Dancing!

I didn't see this date/event listed on either King Biscuit's webpage or the Supper Club's webpage.. so if you think you might want to go check it out -- I would call the venue to verify that this is actually happening.
