December 1997
Those of you who missed our last workshop with Maria Torres, what can I say?
Well, it was rainy and cold outside, but in side we were Hot! It was a hot
pattern with some hot ladies styling. Maria will make her return in the Spring
1998. I would like again to thank the following people, Robin Rebello, Stephanie
Elkin, Jay Larrick, Dennis Mc Affee, Steve Ahl, Les Robinson, Carolyn Jones and
Bobby Concepcion, for their super efforts, before, during and after Maria's

Here's some news, that's hot off the press. Cesar Ricaurte will have a new night
for Hustle dancing in the Los Angeles area. Every Monday night at Memories, 1074
N. Tustin Ave, Anaheim, CA. Great location with lunch, dinner and dancing, lots
of parking, huge dance floor, awesome sound system, great music, plus hustle
classes in both Beginning and Intermediate levels. Those of you who travel to
the southland for business or pleasure, check it out! (for more info see Dancing
in L.A.)

Here are the dates for the next Hustle USA Dance Championships, September 25th,
26th & 27th, 1998 in New York City N.Y. There will be some NEW divisions for
1998, such as a rising star teen division plus many more so stay tuned to this
new letter for more information.

Well, this is a first, a very short news letter. I have to shop till I drop for
Christmas and re-charge my brain cells for the new year, so Happy Holidays to
you all and have a very Happy New Year!
