Swing Dance for a Cure

For those of us who have not gone out of town for the Labor Day holiday weekend and are looking for something fun to do, there is a breast cancer benefit swing dancing event 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1 at The Rhythm Room, 1019 E. Indian School Road. Who cares if you don't know how to dance? (I sure as heck don't!) It's for a good cause! Tickets, which will be available at the door, are $5. There will be live music from Pat Roberts and the Heymakers, the Jaimie Waldron Trio and Whiskey Kiss. See you there! (I will be outside just before the doors open at 7 with a Meetup sign. Call or text with questions: 623.455.6412.)

    Personal wallflower anxieties aside (and believe me, they reached fever pitch at one point), this event gets a very strong thumbs up! We swung... swang... what's the past-tense of swing?... We swingded to some spectacular music (my favorite band was Pat Roberts and the Heymakers with the terrific Tom Coulson on drums) and just had an amazing evening! Temporary Jack Daniels tattoos, guys on roller-skates and seeing that some of our ScottsdaleMeetup.com members can really shake a tail feather with incredibly impressive skill made this event not only memorable but successful in encouraging some of the group's two-left-footed members (ahem) to let loose, chip away at those aforementioned anxieties and - surprisingly - actually have fun. Kudos to Kendall for suggesting this event and thanks to all who attended!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
