  1. A Night of festive fun at PBDA this Saturday. Make an ornament for our tree (prizes for most creative!), the annual “Present Pass” (we provide the presents!), door prizes, holiday trivia, & more! Don’t miss this!

  2. Dear Brian and Julianne ~

    Thanks so much for all your help spreading the word about Jack’s Cats during 2019. Your enthusiasm means a LOT! You’ve already got our next Cicada show on the calendar (THX again!), but I hope you and everyone might enjoy our poster for that date. See you there…?

    Best,

  3. On behalf of the UCLA Swing Dance Club, we’d like to invite the entire swing dance community to our Lindyland event!
    On May 15-17, 2020, we’ll be hosting a Lindy and Balboa exchange. This weekend-long event comes in two parts. Lindyland will be held on UCLA’s world-famous campus in the Kerchoff Grand Salon. For even Moore dancing fun, join us at the Moore Dance Studio in Brentwood (a 10 minute drive from UCLA).

    Please see our website for details and prices. We hope to see you all there!

    1. Hi Kristen,

      Looks great! Added to the Lindy Calendar! If you’d like to do a blog post about it on my site closer to the event, let me know!

      Best,
