Benefits and Whatnot

Dearest Tucsonan Lindy Hoppers,

Just wanted to shout out that I'll be organizing dancers for some up and coming benefits. Benefits are great for two reasons: 1) The benefit itself   2) Exposure of our dance community to the general community.

Okay, so here is what is coming up.

1. Ralph C Romero Jr. Scholarship Foundation Benefit Dance Concert
January 28th, 2011 @6pm
Tickets are $5

To enter a piece, we need to submit the information sheet by January 12, 2011. Haven't decided if there is time for this one yet.

2. Arizona Theater Company is putting on a Street fair(ish) benefit for the families of troops that are abroad. They are doing a 1940's theme. This is happening Saturday, March 19, 2011, during the early afternoon. I'll get the exact times later.

a) I'll need someone on hand to teach basics to the public.
b) Several pieces are needed for showcase. I am thinking the following for starters:

i. Big Apple
ii. Cali Routine
iii. Charleston Routine (Mija, Howard, and I)
iv. Potentially reviving the Diga Diga Doo routine OR a new routine entirely


So, if anyone else is interested in contributing/dancing/etc. for these benefits...I am all ears! Shoot me an email: gayl@thedanceloft.com

Anyways, think about it. It would be great to get the Tucson lindy community involved with the public.

Happy Holidays. Swing out and prosper!

-G
