February 1998  
Out with the old in with the new, 1998 is here! Some of you may not know this
but our Club has taken on a national flavor, we have memberships all over the
United States, we even had inquires from Moscow University, in Russia and
Hamburg, Germany as well. And that comes from the people browsing the Internet
and reading our newsletters. A job well done, to Michael Cohen, for his computer
wizardry and a Thank you to Rahul Dhesi for the space. There have been other
Dance Clubs following our cause, such as Sacramento, California and South
Florida. Also a possibility of others forming in Los Angeles and New York. Since
1993, organizations such as Hustle USA and The Hustle Dance Club have worked
together to promote and expose Hustle dancing to other Dancers. But the best
thing of all is that we are not alone. West Coast Swing Events and Country
Western Events have added Hustle Divisions and Hustle Workshops to their events
and have enjoyed dancing the Hustle. In the Bay Area we have had a number, of
Great Instructors teaching Hustle workshops, Maria Torres, Debra Hampton, David
Sarul, Beata Howe, Mario Rabou Jr., Atlas Griffith, Angel Figueroa, Buddy
Schwimmer, Gail and Jamie Arias, Michael Khiem, Luis Rosa and a few more that
I probably missed. They have all been sponsored by numerous Clubs, Ballrooms and
individuals such as, Next Generation Swing Club, Santa Cruz Swing Club, The
Friday Night Dancers (Pavilion) and the Hustle Dance Club. Just about all the
Ballrooms, in the Bay Area, have added Hustle workshops or group classes or
Hustle Dance nights to their dance schedules. Individuals such as Michelle
Kinkaid, Robert Royston & Laureen Boldovi, Richard Kear & Helen Voss and many
others have added Hustle Classes to their W.C. Swing and Country Western Dance
schedules. Other private Hustle workshops have been sponsored by Becky Adams,
in Santa Cruz, Ava Apple, in San Francisco and "Red" Donnely and Nick Lawrence,
in Berkeley. I would not be surprised, if other groups or individuals start
popping up here and there to enjoy the popularity of Hustle. Even though there
have been many successful Hustle events, there have also been some failures or
mediocre events, but over all, Hustle dancing is here to stay. And, I look
forward to this new year, for many more successful Hustle endeavors. 

Next, I'd like to pass on a letter sent to us from two of our members, Janada
and Tom Clark, who recently returned from a trip to Hawaii.

Dear Hustle Friends,

      Aloha! Tom and I just returned from a vacation in Hawaii. Besides all the
great sun and water activities, we did a lot of Ballroom dancing! Before we left
information about dancing was a might hard to come by, so we thought you'd like
to hear the scoop.
      Hawaiian people love Ballroom dancing. In Oahu the best place is the
Palladium, right off Waikiki. With a dance floor almost twice the size of
Starlight (Sunnyvale), it's located directly over the Ala Wai Golf Course
Clubhouse. That's where we spent New Year's eve with about 350 friendly locals
(not the least bit crowed!) First a spread of Hawaii's delicious, favorite foods,
then six hours of dancing: lots of Waltz, Fox Trot, Cha Cha, Tango and Samba.
No Hustle though. We danced a couple (Hustle) to some Cha Cha's and got lots of
looks. Hope we looked good! People were friendly and welcomed us warmly. The
mixer was unique. Partners met under an arch of Mistletoe and had to kiss before
they danced. If you were lucky, the music stopped and (you) won $5.00! I'd like
to see them do that at the Starlight (Ballroom, Sunnyvale)! The dance was hosted
by a lovely lady, Grace Nohara, president of the Ilima Dance Club. The Palladium
also has dancing from noon to 2pm weekdays.
      Another dancer recommended  Rumors, a lounge at the Ala Moana Hotel, also
in Waikiki. Every Sunday at 5pm they serve a buffet and have ballroom dancing
till 8:30pm, then it turns Disco. Kind of like Chez Louis (of Palo Alto). Great
food and music. For $5.00 one of the best bargains in Waikiki!
      On the big Island of Hawaii we heard about two clubs: Kona Ballroom and
Dance Hawaii. We met up with one of these groups at the Kona Resort in Kailua
Kona. Great live band. Doing a Hustle while listening to ocean serf was quite
a thrill! 
      Kind of neat to know you can pop in just about anywhere and make new
friends all with the same passion for dancing. I've included some names and
phones for your information.

                                          Janada and Tom Clark

Thank you, Janada and Tom, for sharing your experiences in Hawaii with all of
us. Again, it's time to go. Keep Dancing and Prancing! And I'll see you on the
dance floor.
