(These results are courtesy of Sundance Dance Club) Here's some non-Hustle notes, HDC member Steve Gavazza with his partner Marilyn Lund won, a Lindy Hop contest at The Top Of The Mark, in the Mark Hopkins Hotel, June 13th. Congratulations to Steve and Marilyn..., next time try a Hustle contest! Just kidding. Also, HDC members Ava Apple and Luis Rosa, won a Salsa contest at Shabooms, in San Jose, CA. Sunday August 10th. Salsa and chips? Humm, they must be warming up for something? I wonder what it could be? Great job by all of you, keep up the good dancing. We have had several out of state quests sampling the Hustle Dance scene here in the Bay Area. A hearty welcome to Cherly Israel, Crispin & Beckey Pierce, from the State of Washington, Luis Rosa from the Bronx, N.Y. Mike Falcone, Av Shiloh and Lois Sablich, from Philadelphia and Drew Axlerod from Miami, Florida. It was nice having all of you here dancing and prancing. Luis Rosa, teaming up with his partner Ava Apple, taught several Hustle workshops and group classes. Those of you who had the pleasure of watching Ava and Luis perform at The Allegro, and the Metronome Ballrooms or just fooling around at the Starlite Ballroom and Grand Palace, were treated to some impressive lifts, drops and sweeps plus some exciting floor dancing. They should be one of the top couples competing in the Theatre Arts and Classic Hustle divisions at the Hustle USA dance championships in New York. Good luck to the both of them. Here is an interesting development, Brian Colbert, from the Sacramento Area will soon be organizing The Hustle Dance Club of Sacramento. All members of HDC will receive the benefits of the membership, such as discounts from dances and from workshops. Soon to follow, will be New York City, thanks to Nan Bohrar's efforts and possibly Miami, Florida. All of you, who are current members, will enjoy the Hustle scene from East coast to West coast. Bay Area HDC members now receive discounts from the Allegro, Metronome and Starlite Ballrooms and enjoy great prices from our workshops. Soon you will be able to travel and enjoy the benefits of being members of the Hustle Dance Club. Keep dancing and prancing, and I'll see you on the dance floor!
