Nov. 1996

Step by Step .... By Ava Apple

"Heaven, I'm in Heaven... Oops... That was last issue. But
it's also how we felt when we went to New York for Hustle USA 1996.

The girls (Daria Sanchez, Margie Luna) and I arrived
Wednesday and went to Maria Torres' weekly hustle party at
"Stepping Out". Lots of good dancers to watch-I say watch
because nobody asked us to dance until the end of the
evening. Thursday we walked around Manhattan-it's like San
Francisco's Union Square X 100. In the evening we went to
the "Latin Quarter", Giro was playing-Big name Salsa bands
that we get a few times a year play every weekend in N.Y.
Again nobody would ask us to dance, so Daria and I got out
on the floor-I led-from then on we had plenty of partners.
By Friday Ann Keen had joined us- Ann, Margie & Daria went
exploring while Leo Garcia and I spent most of the day
putting together a routine for the "Night Club Salsa"
Division on Sunday. That night was the "Hustle USA"
welcoming party at "Dance New York". No lack of partners by
now,-we already knew some people plus our fellow
Californians were there (see "Bits & Pieces" for all the
names). We all had a blast, non stop dancing-great
music-dancers from all across the U.S.

Saturday the competition started. The first event was
supposed to be "Bookends" but it was delayed for over an
hour. We were supposed to dance for 1-1/2 minutes, all the
couples at the same time, but instead they had each couple
dance one at a time for 3 minutes. After about 2 minutes I
was thinking to my self, "How can I lead Margie off the
floor?" But by the time I could think of anything the music
was fading. I also danced in the "Just Hustle" Division
with Luis Rosa. We had met the night before at the
welcoming party and managed to come in 3rd out of about 15
couples. The day didn't end until after midnight and we
were back again early Sunday. I didn't get to watch a lot
of the competitors routines because Leo and I were getting
warmed up for our routine. I did get to watch the "Theatre
Arts" division which was won by Kenny Gonzales and Nellie
Cotto. What a treat to watch them, I've been a fan of
Nellie's since I first saw her with partner Floyd Chisholm
on the Merv Griffin Disco Championships (this was before
"Dance Fever"). By Sunday night we were so exhausted, all
we could do was go out to eat-we were supposed to go to
"Yakkity Yak" in New Jersey but our bodies needed a rest!

Monday night we danced again,-this time at Paul Pelicoro's
"Dancesport", lots of good dancers and a contest that was
fun to watch. Tuesday morning Daria, Margie and I were
guests on "Personal FX", a cable show about collectibles
and collectors. In the evening we went to the legendary
"Copacabana" (two blocks from the hotel), kind of like
Kimball's "Carnival" but bigger and packed with dancers.
They have two dance rooms,-the main room has Salsa bands,
the second room plays Hustle, Latin, House, etc.
Unfortunately for us they closed at 2am. On weekends
they're open till 4am.

Needless to say we had a great time and are planning to
attend the event again in '97. Hopefully the "Inn on 57th"
will have finished it's renovations. However it will
probably be more expensive then. When we checked into our
room we were surprised to find a trophy wall-there were
several smashed cockroaches displayed on the wall by
Daria's bed. Every time we saw a live one I would start
singing "La Cucaracha". Luckily the hotel staff was
friendly and fairly helpful which counter-balanced the
crummy things about the place.

Time to go-remember to keep working on your dancing no
matter what your age or level, there is always room for
improvement. Raul and I will be teaching a Hustle workshop
on December 14th and Maria Torres and Angel Figueroa should
be here mid January. "Do the Hustle..."

BITS and PIECES: Hustle USA Dance Championships.
When someone coined the term "The City that never sleeps"
that is exactly what it felt like. Upon our arrival on
Friday afternoon it was off to the welcome party, at "Dance
New York Studio", the dancing was at a frenzied pace, non
stop action. Hustle and Salsa exhibitions were in order,
Disco Dave Sarul and Debra Hampton with Hustle USA mascot
Sean delighted the crowd with some Hustle Dancing, then
Donna Boyle and her Performance Hustle team were next, very
entertaining. The Salsa exhibitions included, Delille
Thomas and his beautiful dance partner Duplessey, (who
happens to be Eddie Torres' niece), and the one and only,
Maria Torres, with The King of Salsa, Eddie Torres (no
relation by the way), both exhibitions were flashy, sexy
and HOT, the room temperature rose about 20 degrees. I
really can't tell you how late Friday night or how early
Saturday morning, we stopped dancing, all I can say, is all
the Dancers were, exhausted and weary. Saturday morning the
Hustle and Salsa workshops began at noon, and it was time
to go to work. Judging the contest this year were Head
Judge and Teacher of the Month, Angel Figueroa along with
Lourdes Jeuers, Esther Don, Louis Orlando, Delille Thomas,
all from New York and myself, Raul Ante, from California.
At this point, I would normally start describing all the
action that went on for two days, but, this news letter
would be endless, so guess what! I going to be short and to
the point! It was fabulous, exciting, fun. How's that! I
know that's pretty lame, but I'll do one better. Ask one of
the following Bay Area residents who attended this year and
get their thoughts. My special thanks to the following:
Audrianna Correa, Sammy Irizarry, Brian Colbert, Betty
Waldron, Mario Rulloda, Bobby Concepcion, Ylva Wintzell,
Ava Apple, Margie Luna, Daria Sanchez, Marc Mc Govern, Tom
& Janada Clark, Allan & Yumi Sam, Ron Nicholson, Carla Von
Merz, Jian Xie, Paula Tierney, Sam Howard, Chona Lista,
Motoko Komatsu, Ann Keen, Arthur Calandrelli and Raul Ante,
from the Los Angeles Area: Debra Hampton, David Sarul,
Beverly Ball, Alma De Vera, Richard Slivkin, Robin
Schlesinger, Marc Miggins, Jodee Adair, Stephen Hicks,
Jayma Newland, Archie Dawson and Josie Ramirez. If that's
not enough, how about, our out of state Hustle club
members: Tony Pace from Texas, Adler Manjares, Tess
Martillano, Nan Bohrar, Maria Torres, Angel Figueroa and
Dorian Delnevo from New York, Joyce Szili from Washington
D.C., Gordon Lee from, Minnesota, Bev & Bob Budzynski,
Barry Douglas and Joyce Staughton from Michigan, Randy
Atlas, Drew Axlerod, Bill Washabaugh, Frank Mazzarella from
Florida, Keith Gussoni from Louisianna, Av Shiloh, Donna
Boyle from Pennsylvania, O.K!, O.K!, Enough names. I can
guarantee you'll hear both positive and negative comments,
but, most will all agree this was a Hustle Dancers Paradise
and if you were not impressed with the quality of dancing,
or the quality of the music, or the quality of the
competitors, YOU, simply, were not there!! Or, perhaps you
had your head miss placed some where. My apologies to all
those people, whose names I've forgotten or left off. Now,
for the results:

recipient of The "Eddie Vega Award of Excellence" goes to
none other than Hustle "Diva", Maria Torres. My
congratulations to Maria for an award she truly deserves,
for all the outstanding work she has done to keep Hustle
alive and well. 

Special recognition should go to several Bay Area
residents, Marc McGovern, Ylva Wintzell, Sam Howard, Margie
Luna, Sam Irizarry and Audrianna Correa, for participating
in the competitions, and doing very well. Plus, a special
congratulations to Ava Apple for her second place in the
Salsa Competition and third place finishes in the Bookends
and Just Dance Hustle Divisions. Last of all and best of
all, Bobby Concepcion, for his FIRST place, in the
Jack-N-Jill Hustle Contest, I hope he doesn't change his
first name to "Mr. Jack", any way, great job by all of you.

Again, I would like to thank Hustle U.S.A. for doing a
wonderful job in organizing another fun and exciting Hustle
competition, in spite of some major problems with the
Hotel, Maria Torres, Debra Hamptom, Dave Sarul and Donna
Boyle, you and your staff, came through in the clutch. Also
to, head judge, Angel Figueroa for keeping all us judges in
line, and last of all, to M.C. and D.J. supreme, Bobby
Morales for the excellent job at M.C. and also his
assistant Nelson Roman for providing some dynamite MUSIC.
Until next Year! (Sept. 26, 27 & 28th 1997)
