    Thats me... who are you?

    Terry and Tammy are still in Ventura and still teaching as far as I know, but I think they have been focusing more on their other professional persuits than lindy hop.

    You wouldn't know me personally. I just remember seeing you in the comps at Monsters. I'm one of the small number of (current) black, female lindy hoppers.

    Black female? Sounds good to me. I'm a ballroom person, but no matter where you go, we're in short supply. Do you travel for dance training? If so, there's a lindy exchange here (Orlando, FL) in October. You're welcome to stay at my place. 8) :D

    pygmalion- I'm trying to travel more often. What part of Floridado you live? I definitely would like to check your dance scence. I'll try to take you up on that offer at a later date. Can you give me any more info about the lindy exchange? I don't do ballroom, but I wouldn't mind learning.

    lindy jihad- Are you a lindy hopper? Where did you move from? I'm not certain about the scene in Ventura now. Damon might know.

    I like Atlantic Dance. On Disney property, so it's all good clean family oriented fun. And decent dancing, with a huge dance floor. You can't beat that.
