You don't stop dancing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop dancing. - anon

Swing City is taking a break for the rest of the summer - we look forward to seeing you back in September. Do not stop dancing! Do not grow old!

I have tickets for the Annual Chinese Ladies Club Fundraiser dance being held at Commonwealth Place on Saturday, August 29th. Tickets are only sold in advance for this event. Contact me directly for tickets at

Registration is now open for new classes for September listed below.

If you would like information on my 30th Anniversary dance cruises to Europe or the Caribbean please email me at

Vote for the Dance Party!! But, since there is no Dance Party to vote for in the October election it is challenging to know what is the correct party to vote for. Take a few minutes to check out these websites - it makes voting a whole lot easier. You may think you know which party is aligned with your beliefs, but you might be surprised. Your friends might like these as well.

Before the drawing board, what did they get back to?

Why is the alphabet in that order? Is it because of that song?

If most accidents happen at home, why doesn’t everyone just move?

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring, so I just go back to being myself.

I once shot an elephant in my pyjamas. What he was doing in them, I'll never know.

Why is it called a TV set if you only get one?

Is Disneyland a people trap run by a mouse?

Why does sour cream have a “use by” date?

Why isn’t phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

I'm so jealous of my parents. I will never have a kid as cool as theirs.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Line dancing was invented by women waiting in line to use the washroom.

Common sense is like deodorant. Those who need it the most, never use it.

I don't know how to act my age because I've never been this age before.
