HUSTLE DANCE CLUB NEWS LETTER Sept, 1998 BITS AND PIECES July was a HOT month, especial with Angel Figueroa in town. He had two great workshops in Salsa and Hustle plus twenty hours of private lessons during his brief stay. I would like to thank all of you who booked private lessons and attended both workshops, plus a special thank you to Kim Berquist, Robert Royston, Steve Ahl, Robin Rebello, Jay Larrick, Stefanie Elkin, James Religa, Dennis McAffee, Michelle Kinkaid, James and Jodee Adair and Oliva Dasso, for all your help and hospitality during Angels stay. We will resume our workshop schedule after the Hustle USA Dance Championships, in September. Great news, for you crazy Hustle dance fanatics attending the Hustle USA Dance Championships. As you know Hustle USA is just around the corner, that is September 25th thru the 27th. There will be an abundance of Hustle Dancing that weekend alone. If the Hustle USA dance competition is not enough dancing for you, Donna Boyle, is having an after Hustle USA Dance party & competition at Dance Manhattan Sunday night after the Hustle USA dance competition has concluded. If that's not enough, DanceSport has another Hustle dance party & competition Monday night. So here's a bit of advice for those of you who are attending Hustle USA, bring a GOOD pair(s) of dance shoes. Since I'm on the subject of Great News, here's some great news. The World Hustle Dance Council will have "Hustlemania" here on the west coast?... World Hustle Dance Council?... Hustlemania?... O.K. Let me back track a bit. Introducing! The World Hustle Dance Council, Phil Adams, Debra Hampton, Martin Parker, Patty Straight and Steve Zenner, If you don't know who these people are you've been living under a cabbage patch way to long. WHDC will have a Hustle Competition, "Hustlemania", August 6th, 7th & 8th, 1999, in Fresno, at the Centre Plaza Holiday Inn. So there, one years advance notice. Mark your calendars and I will release more information as time goes on, so stay tuned! Pay Attention! Here are some Friday nights to remember, second Friday of the month, Hustle dance @ Metronome Ballroom (Block Party) S.F., third Friday of the month, Variety dance @ Monte Cristo Club, S.F., and the fourth Friday of the month, Swing & Hustle Dance at California Dance Center, San Jose. Plus, the third Sunday of the month, Hustle Dance at California Dance Center, San Jose. These once a month dances are very hard to keep track of so I will try my best to keep you informed. If you can remember any of these new dance nights and need to try something different, a change of pace, try one or two or all of these new dance nights. Here's a little something extra, Angel Figueroa and Debbie Bernard will be here in the Bay Area for the S.F. Dance Festival held at the Wyndham Hotel in San Jose, anyone wishing to book privates lessons with either Angel or Debbie please call me (Raul Ante) at 415-467-8830. Angel can teach all the Ballroom Latin dances plus Salsa, West Coast Swing, Hustle and Argentine Tango, Debbie can teach Country Western, West Coast Swing and Hustle. Here's some food for thought. It's very easy to dance bad, it's very hard to dance well. There are many dancer's who want to take the easy road, some how taking some magical pill and they become "dancers". Wake up! Good dancing doesn't work that way! It takes many hours of hard work, lots of practice, practice, practice. I see a number of dancers with lots of patterns but no technique, or lots of so called technique, like standing around, but no movement. Leading well or following well takes some hard work. Leaders who muscle their partners through a pattern are not dancing, I think they call that type of dancing, wrestling. I once took a workshop with Maria Torres and Arte Phillips and during the workshop Arte said to the class, "The dance is called "Hustle" NOT "Muscle" and that statement hit the nail square on the head! I wish there was an easy answer to being a good dancer. I know a lot of us dancers say we dance, just to have FUN. In reality if you do not dance well you will not dance with much frequency, unless you're "really good looking" and in that scenario, it is no longer social dancing but social slimming. Sitting on your hind quarters is not my idea of fun. Going to a dance and being asked to dance just about every dance and going home feeling tired, sweaty and aching from head to toe, this may sound masochistic but I had one heck of a good time! The intensity to become a better dancer will vary from each individual. There are some people who feel they are already so good they do not need any coaching or lessons, but some of the best dancers I know continually seek knowledge from their peers or people from other venues of dance such as country western dancers seeking advise from Ballroom competitors. That intensity to be better or the best, separates the good dancers from the average dancer. All dancers should strive to be better. What every your intensity levels is, whether you feel you need a lot of help or just, some help, always seek that little extra to become better a dancer. That little extra can make a difference. Well that's enough food for thought, my brain is full. Keep dancing and prancing and I'll see you on the dance floor.
