June 2002 HUSTLE TALK ** NEW EVENT UPDATE: The website for Pacific Hustle & Salsa Dance Classic is finally up & running: www.pacifichustleandsalsadanceclassic.com Check out the website and don't forget to mark this event down on your calendar, February 7-9th, 2003, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, 1333 Bayshore Hwy., Burlingame, CA. A stretching & aerobics class with Kaylene Buteau, a "three-way" hustle class with Bobby Concepcion & Stephen Ward, and a ladies styling class with Ylva Wintzell have been added. There will be dance exhibitions by "Latin Symbolics", Billy Fajardo & Katie Marlow, and Billy Fajardo & Maria Torres... with more to come. The Master of Ceremonies will be Robert Royston. Be sure to check back with the website as more information gets finalized & posted. If you have any questions, call the event director, Raul Ante, at 415-467-8830. ** NAME CHANGE: After less than four months of switching our Tuesday night location, the new location has gone & changed their name. It has changed from Chef King to Sandy's Fast Food Chinese Restaurant. Please note that only the name has changed, not the location. The restaurant is still located at 727 W. Hamilton Ave. @ Darryl Dr. (one block west of San Tomas Expressway), Campbell, CA, 408-374-6009. Well, we returned from the International Hustle & Salsa Competition in Miami Beach, which was held April 4-7th. There was a huge turnout from all over the nation. This was such a fun event... with poolside dancing, the beaches, the shops, the sun, great music, partying into the wee hours, great dancers... how could it not be fun. Make sure to mark your calendars & plan on going to this event next year. Don't forget that the next big Hustle event is the Disco America Dance Championship in Philadelphia, PA, from June 7-9th, 2002, followed by the World Hustle Dance Championship in Secaucus, NJ, from July 25-28th.
