July, 1996


At the Country Dance Classic held in Fresno, over Memorial
Day weekend, Debra Hampton and "Disco" Dave Sarul took
FIRST place in the "Just Dance Hustle Division". Their
routine was definitely a crowd favorite and I can
personally add that their performance was at a level I had
never seen before. Second place went to Nancy Goldberg and
John McMullin. Other winners included Tim Rinner and Teresa
Macgary? in the novice division and Eric Myers and Denise
Davis in the intermediate division. In the Jack-N-Jill
Novice division Eric Myers and Wendy Aspen were the
winners, in the advance division, Kyle Rett and his partner
Nancy received first place. Some how I missed the
intermediate division, must have been a sleep? My hearty
congratulations to Steve Zener for producing another great
Country & Western Competition with featured Hustle again
this year! Check out Steve's next production in November,
see details in this news letter under Future Events.

Here are the results from Sunday, June 2, at The Starlite
Ballroom's Jack-N-Jill hustle contest, 1st place to Earl
Ante and Patrice, 2nd place to Laurie Neilsen and Scott,
3rd place to Steve Drake and Carol Ann Miller (sorry about
some of the last names). 

Great news for you East Bay Hustle fans, I was invited to
observe a Beginning and Intermediate Hustle class, with
Robert Royston, held at the Cowboy Country Club in
Pleasanton. I would highly recommend, to all of you who
wish to learn beginning and intermediate Hustle, take these
series of Hustle classes. Excellent instructions, of basic
hustle and dance techniques. Well worth the effort to
attend. I would like to thank Robert for the great
hospitality and special recognition he gave to The Hustle
Dance Club and myself. There is more information somewhere
in this news letter of up coming Hustle Workshops by Robert
and Laureen, so check it out!! Oh by the way, word is out
that Robert and Laureen will be competing in more Hustle
competitions, this is one couple you won't want to miss!

Another tid bit of information, two of our members have
moved to the land down under, Australia. James Bower and
his wife Kathleen Quinlan will be planning to introduce, to
the locals, some of the American nite club dances such as
Hustle, Nite-Club Two Step and West Coast Swing. 

Also, for those of you, who were unaware that Maria Torres
and Angel Figueroa were here in the Bay Area, we had some
great Hustle workshops plus a Mambo/Salsa workshop and they
also competed at The Sapphire Ballroom competition, held at
The Red Lion Inn, in San Jose, over the 4th of July
weekend.  Friday Night, Maria and Angel took First Place in
The Rising Star Professional American Rhythm Division, they
were judged first in all the five dances. On Sunday night,
they placed fourth, in the Open Professional American
Rhythm Division, oh by the way, judging from the chorus of
BOOS and HISSING sounds, that fourth place finish was not
very popular with the crowd. That's life in the Ballroom

Another reminder that, The HUSTLE USA Dance Championships
are just around the corner, October 12th and 13th. For the
REAL Hustle Dancer this is the event to attend! This is the
REAL deal! A Hustle dance event, sponsored by Hustle
Dancers, for Hustle Dancers and judged by Hustle Dancers!
After last year successful competition, Hustle Dancers from
all over the U.S. are planning to attend this year. There
is still time to make your reservations, see details under
future events.

Starting Thursday August 8th another night of Hustle
Dancing, thanks to John Schlicht and David Wu. Check under
Thursday night for further details!
