Mardi Gras and March Mayhem Madness 2011

Hello Wonderful Tucson Lindy Hoppers and guest visitors!

This month has two awesome Mardi Gras parties and that always bodes well lindy hop fun. This upcoming Saturday (as stated below) is the WareHouse Stomp Mardi Gras party. The following Friday Al Moro's (up in Phoenix) is having their third annual Mardi Gras masquerade party.


Also, on the list of happening things...Howard and Mija are teaching the 8pm lesson at Swing Cats for the month of March. They have developed a really cool new approach to the beginning class. You won't want to miss it. Also, if you don't know, SwingCats is always on Tuesday nights. Please visit their website for more information.  :)


Paired with some fine Phoenicians, we Tucsonans are gathering a posse to attend 505 Stomp in Albuquerque this year. If you are interested, send me a note and I can see about getting you in for the group rate. 

Also, don't forget your cross training for lindy hop! Join us at the The DanceLoft for SavoyFit, every Saturday for a cross training class for lindy hoppers. Noon-1:30pm.
