July 2013: New Classes, New Schedule PLUS Other Trish News


Posted on July 3rd, 2013, in Dance Classes, Newsletters, Other Dance Events

Hey, y’all  –

Just returned from the wilds of Maine for a family wedding, I’m talking rural where cell phone service was scarce. That was a strange experience, feeling out of touch but also kind of liking it (for a brief time, LOL).

For those of you who know me from the Autry Museum in Los Angeles – Earlier this year when the Autry offered me the contract for Sizzlin’ Salsa Summer Nights of 2013, I had to think long and hard about making that weekly drive from San Diego to Los Angeles – and just decided that I couldn’t do it; the stress of the drive, of fighting that traffic every week – well, it just tied up my stomach just thinking about it. So I’m sad to say that I won’t be part of the Autry family this year. I was the official Salsa teacher for them for the past 5 years and it was always a most fun and rewarding experience and I loved every second of it. But things change, and although I will SO miss the Autry and the Autry team and the bands and the music and all the wonderful people, I won’t miss the drive. Check out Enio Cordoba (lots of you know him from the Granada in Alhambra as well as him being Robert Cordoba’s brother), he is the new staff teacher and they are lucky to have him!

However, I still plan on making the trip to Los Angeles for teaching weekends, the next of which is coming up on SUNDAY, JULY 14th: a new Hacienda Sunday Workshop Day featuring Nightclub 2-Step, Hustle and WCS Workshops! If you are in the area, stop on by!

I am going to the Arizona Dance Classic (August 2-4, Phoenix AZ,www.arizonadanceclassic.com), lots of dancing, workshops and Pro/Am opportunities in Hustle, Nightclub and WCS, PLUS ADC is a World Swing Dance Council member, come dance for your points! Want to dance Pro/Am at ADC? Let’s get busy!

Also coming up – Halloween Swingthing and Paradise Dance Festival, both in October! I will be at both events, let’s get your Pro/Am program (or your competition chops) rockin’ in preparation for these events!
