dancing at The Big Easy (map)

Each Thursday* . including Thursday . October 3, 2013
9:30ish - after 1:00am
The Big Easy . 5731 Kirby Drive near The Rice Village
(South of Bissonnet, between Firestone and Domino’s Pizza)

Come check out The Big Easy on Thursdays for Luther and The Healers!
Luther (http://www.lutherandthehealers.com) is one of our very favorite local Blues/Swing dance bands and we inevitably have a great time there. There are often dancers there for some great dancing and no more smoke! :)

We also sometimes catch them at Capone's (http://www.caponeshouston.com) and other places around town.

*The last Thursday of the month has The Blues Society Jam (http://www.houstonbluessociety.org) instead of Luther. That can perhaps be a little more hit & miss but it's often still great dancing - plus you get an education about other incredible blues performers in town.

Friday Night Blues @ Te

Friday, September 27, 2013 . 9:00pm-midnightish
... each n' every Friday... period!
. . . . .
at Té House of Tea (visit them)
1927 Fairview - Houston 77019 (map)
(Fairview at Woodhead)
BYOB: They don't have a license to sell alcohol, but they're completely fine if you bring your own - they have a small corkage fee, and plenty of wine and champagne glasses for your convenience.
Of course, they have good food and good tea ( Fair Trade coffee) to drink too :)

. . . . .
Just a few things to please keep in mind regarding... Te Dance Etiquette:
. Te has gotten very popular and it's great to see all the people having fun there! As a result we can have a very crowded dance floor. Out of consideration for your partner and for others on the floor around you, please understand what it is to dance with frame so that not only is your dancing more comfortable and more responsive, but you're also less likely to be crashing into your neighbors.
. Try to maintain good humor on the floor :)
. . . . .
NO fee
NO cover
NO charge, so come on out to play and
Be a good customer &/or at least drop a $dollar in the tip jar : )
It's always good!

Dance Force Productions - Extreme Swing

intermediate-advanced lindy classes by Jerry & Robin

Each Tuesday . beginning September 6th
9:00 - 10:00pm
at SSQQ . 1431 West 20th St. in beautiful Houston Heights (map)*
$48/month or $40/person if a male & female register together

Extreme Swing is an Intermediate/Advanced Lindy class taught & directed by Jerry Foote & Robin Carlson of Dance Force Productions. Advanced techniques, musicality, aerials & dips, and stage presence will be taught, along with performance opportunities. A very close ratio of Leads & Follows will be ensured, as well as the level of ability of dancers taking the class. We will rotate partners throughout class, but if a couple wants to train exclusively with each other, that is acceptable.

Prerequisites: Must have basic Lindy training (6 count & 8 count), be able to do swing outs & turns without hesitation, and understand lead/follow concept. Must have the fitness level needed to begin learning dips and aerials.

FEES: $48/month or $40/person if a male & female register together.
Includes all Tuesdays in a month. We accept cash & checks. Checks are payable to Dance Force Productions and must be presented before the beginning of the first class of the month. A minimum of 10 couples will be needed, but there will also be a cap of 20 couples. Payment in advance ensures your spot in the class. Checks can be given to Robin any time you see her out dancing, & checks will be held until the session actually starts.

*SSQQ is located in the Heights where East TC Jester and Ella and 18th and 19th and 20th all come together . They're in the same bldg as Restaurant Depot around the left side toward the back.
