HUSTLE DANCE CLUB NEWS LETTER 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: Jack-N-Jill Hustle: 1st Place, Bobby Concepcion & Kim Vanaman, 2nd, Archie Dawson & Josie Ramirez, 3rd, Tom Robertson & Jeanette Axlerod.

And finally, this years 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.
