HUSTLE DANCE CLUB NEWS November 27, 1995 Hope everyone had a wonderful THANKSGIVING. Well, we've just knock down another great, New York Style, Hustle Workshop with Debra Hampton and Dave Sarul of the HUSTLE USA group. My Special Thanks to Debra and Dave for a super workshop and for their dance exhibition at The Metronome Ballroom Friday, November 10th. Their floor dance exhibition left a few people scratching their heads and many more with their mouths open. Thanks to Paul Overton, from the Metronome Ballroom, for allowing Debra and Dave the opportunity to dance. I would also like to Thank, Ava Apple for her hospitality, at her Salsa-Hustle Dance and Michelle Kinkaid, for inviting us to her Country Meets Swing Dance, Sunday November 12. Debra and Dave definitely impressed the crowds at both Parties with their dancing. One woman exclaimed " I've never seen Hustle, danced that way before. It was so wonderful to watch". ( Go to New York! ) Last of all, the Tuesday night dance, at The Grand Palace restaurant, Debra and Dave "WOWED" the Hustle crowd with a wonderful Hustle exhibition. Thanks to all the volunteers, Robin Rebello and her son Alan, Jay Larrick and Dennis McAffee, for all their help during the workshop. Great job! The One and Only Maria Torres ( HUSTLE USA ), will be back, starting in 1996, for another New York Style, Hustle Workshop, stay tune for more information. Take advantage of these opportunities, folks. One big reason, some time in the near future, there will be an event, where, East Coast meets West Coast and not because of some big EARTHQUAKE! This event will be held, HERE in THE BAY AREA. I would advise most of you, to try and UP GRADE your HUSTLE DANCING. There are some new and exciting things happening to Hustle Dancing. Some of us already know about it, because we've been there and saw it first hand, most of you don't have a clue as to what's happening. Take advantage of these workshops, we provide them for YOUR benefit. Since our return from New York, great things have been brewing with the Hustle Scene. Now that HUSTLE USA has organized one big event for the year, and years to come, there are now possibilities for smaller or regional events to appear. The best thing that happened, for Hustle Dancing, was Hustle USA 's Dance Championships. They attracted Dancers from all over the United States ( over 300 ), who want to organize into their own Hustle Groups like our own, Hustle Dance Club. The possibilities of finally having dance events that cater to Hustle Dancers is just around the corner. BE PREPARED! Someone once was told me, they were playing more and more Hustle music, at OTHER dance events. After attending several of these OTHER dance events it was very depressing. After three and a half hours, they played four hustle songs, two salsas and a bunch of OTHER music. ( Humm, I wonder what MORE meant? ) Of course, what should I have expected, OTHER dances should play OTHER music, not Hustle, really dumb on my part. Sort of like, a Salsa Dancer, going to a West Coast Swing Dance expecting to hear LOTS of Salsa! Not gon'na happen. Like I've said before, it is encouraging to hear some Hustle music being played at OTHER dances but it's NOT what real Hustle Dancers want. Real Hustle Dancers want Lots of Hustle music. If you want to know the meaning of "LOTS" go see The New York Hustle Clubs or The HUSTLE USA Dance Championships October 12 & 13th and You'll find out. Better yet, come to one of the Tuesday, Thursday or Friday night dances listed below and at least you'll know what "MORE" means. Hustle Dancers should not rely on OTHER dances for all their Hustle Dancing, even though we can dance the OTHER dances. Never fear Hustle Dance events are on there way. Hustle Dancing for Hustle Dancers, where OTHER music will be a side show, just to break up the non stop orgy of Hustle music being played, ..... maybe? Anyway, whether you attend the OTHER dances or HUSTLE dances, just keep dancing because Dancing is life and Life is dancing! Regards, Raul Ante President P.S. Your comments and letters WOULD be appreciated. We would love to publish your commentaries.
