Southland Hustle says “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!”

     We had over 70 people in the door for our first anniversary party on Friday, August 4! Local San Diego based dancers AND dancers from Los Angeles and Orange County as well! What an awesome crowd!

     Archie Dawson taught a great Intermediate level Hustle workshop, while Brandy Richey handled the Beginning lesson in the small ballroom.

     Everyone brought yummy food to share, so lots of eats for everyone – and we had cake! (did I mention the cake??)

     There were six couples in the Open Level Hustle Jack and Jill contest, ALL the entry fees went back into prize money for the winners. Special thanks to Head Judge Laureen Baldovi Mason and scorer Scott Mason.

Open Level Hustle Jack & Jill Results:

1st: John Chaparro and Lisa Simmons

2nd: Robert Soto and Robin ( )

3rd: Paul ( ) and Sharon Ferguson

     DJ Don Seidenspinner kept the music going until the clock struck 11:00 pm and it was time to go home.

      Special thank you to Cliff “Tab” Tabadisto and Karen Tabadisto for working the front door, Susan St. Martin and Penny Oriol for helping with set-up, and David Walkup for filling in EVERYWHERE!

     A great time was had by all! Thanks to all the SoCal Hustle dancers who supported us throughout the year – And here’s to lots more Hustle goodness on the way!

Hustle on!
