Greetings, Tango dancers!

What follows is a copy of my monthly dance mailer, featuring this month's special on private lessons for new students.  If you'd like to be on my normal email list, please write back and include your email address :)

Have you LIKED my FB pages yet?

A big welcome to all of you who are new to my email list :)

Happy New Year to you all!

January 2013 only
Private ballroom classes have a going rate around SoCal of $75/lesson, usually for 45 minutes. For January, I'm offering private couples lessons for only $45/hour, to new students! It's a steal, don't miss it! For a private lesson discount for one person, contact me directly.
Message or call me asap!

The Swing video I choreographed and performed in for the L.A. Red Cross, with 21 other rocking dancers, just went live in late December! Called "SwingFlu", it features some of the best Swing dancers in SoCal, including my dance partner Liz Cartojano, my girlfriend/partner Sarah Aisha, Madison Brightwell ("Suzy Q"), Roscoe from the old Derby days, Michael Benner and Liz Parker from last year's show "SWING" that I danced in, Daniel Fries and Daniel Ortiz from classes at Impulse, and many other wonderful dancers.
Find the SwingFlu video on the page (Episode 7), and click through to youtube, to see it bigger, and LIKE it on youtube if you dig it :)

We start off our January Swing group classes next Friday, hope you'll join us!  We have some new regulars, and brand new faces at almost every class :)
Tango OC kicks off 2013 next week at Impulse, at 9pm, Wed 1/9.  The next Tango class after that will be 1/23.  $15 (cash) gets you a serious lesson, and some time to practice!  Those who have come out thus far have learned A LOT, and their lead/follow abilities have grown immensely!

Sooo...take advantage of my ridiculously good New Years special on private lessons!  Keep telling your friends, and keep coming out to dance!  I've been delighted to see progress in my regular students, and I salute the more experienced dancers who I see helping the newbies :D

   Please be sure to say hey when you attend any of my events or shows!
  Keep dancing!   ~Alec :)

If you'd like to give someone the gift of dance, you can purchase a gift certificate I will make out specially to them.  So, prices: Private one-hour lesson for one person: $45 Private one-hour lesson for a couple: $60 Small group one-hour lessons... 3 to 10 dancers: $20/person
11 to 20 dancers: $15/person
21 or more dancers:  $5/person
Aerials/tricks/stunts one-hour lessons available, for private or small group classes Comments from past students... "It was awesome!! ...and my bf thought it went a lot better than he originally expected lol" (Chelsea) "He is an AMAZING instructor and I learned more in 2 months than most people learn in a year!  The very best part is that Alec is the most positive, affirming instructor I've ever had - this creates a safe place for learning where you can try new stuff and feel good about learning from your mistakes (as opposed to being mocked for them). Oh, and he makes it fun, too." (Suzi) "It was great fun, especially seeing my boyfriend's confidence level go from 0 to 10." (Susanne)
