HUSTLE DANCE CLUB NEWS LETTER July, 1996 BITS and PIECES 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 circuit! 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!
