  1. Hello there!

    This is Melika and I am a certified illustrator.

    I was puzzled, to put it nicely, when I came across my images at your website. If you use a copyrighted image without my approval, you should be aware that you could be sued by the owner.

    It’s illegal to use stolen images and it’s so nasty!

    Check out this document with the links to my images you used at and my earlier publications to obtain evidence of my legal copyrights.

    Download it now and check this out for yourself:

    If you don’t remove the images mentioned in the document above within the next few days, I’ll write a complaint against you to your hosting provider stating that my copyrights have been infringed and I am trying to protect my intellectual property.

    And if it doesn’t work, you may be pretty damn sure I am going to report and sue you! And I will not bother myself to let you know of it in advance.

    1. Hi Jim,

      Thanks for the head’s up!!!! I’ve enabled comments.

      And wow, I didn’t know about CD Baby. Thanks for the head’s up. Feel free to forward any local band store links that you know of.


  2. I would like to know if I can purchase 2 to 7 beginner lessons “passes”. What I am wanting to do is pay for one lesson for up to 7 people that they can use at their leiser between now and say… the end of the year? Is that possible? I am mailing these to some famous Twitch streamers and they will likely not use them for 3 or 4 months when they unbox gifts in their PO BOX. Please let me know.

  3. Hello
    I just came to LA and I’m looking for a place to socialize.
    Can you tell me how to run Mon, Wed and Sat social?

    And I want to take Balboa Group classes. Where do you operate?

  4. Hey Brian, Atomic Ballroom will be open for dancing on the 25th. Not sure about the exact time, but they will be open in the evening.

  5. Hey!

    I’ll be in LA for a few days (near LAX) right before Christmas. Is there any West Coast swing or Shag near there you can refer me to? I won’t have a car.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Alexa,

      It’s hard to know the swing venue schedules so close to Christmas at this time. Some may be closed for the holidays. Joe’s Bar on Mondays is good for Bal and Shag. Check the Lindy Calendar closer to that time:

      Note, my calendar doesn’t cover WCS though.


  6. Hi it’s Friday Nov 1. I am brand new to LA, living in Santa Monica. Where do you suggest I go for swing dancing tonight?

    1. Hi Craig,

      You have two main options.

      Rusty’s in Playa del Rey is hosting Dave Stuckey & the Hot House Gang, a swing dancer favorite band.Should be a good turnout with a wide range of ages.

      Clifton’s in Downtown LA has Marquis & the Rhythm Howlers, ideal for Halloween. It has an amazing nighclub atmosphere and young club / bar crowd, but a good number of swing dancers show up.

      Depends on what you’re looking for.
