      Just a reminder that the upcoming Frankie Manning workshop is less
      than two weeks away!

      If you have yet to register for the workshop and/or purchase tickets to
      the 3rd Annual Shiny Stockings Swing Ball, there are a few things to
      keep in mind:

      *The deadline for online registration is Monday night, February 8th,
      11:59 PM.
      *Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by Friday, February 4th.
      *Saturday, Feb 5th, is your last chance to purchase advance tickets at
      the Doghouse.
      *Sunday, Feb 6th, likewise, is your last chance to purchase advance
      tickets at Lindy in the Park.
      *The Doghouse will be CLOSED on Feb 12th, when everyone will be at the
      3rd Annual Shiny Stockings Swing Ball.

      FM2005 in a large nutshell:

      Feb 11 - 13, 2005

      Again, Friday night's An Evening with Frankie Manning at City College's
      Diego Rivera Theatre is a must for anyone new to the scene. Frankie's
      stories are always insightful, informative, and entertaining. Friday
      night is also a great way to introduce friends to swing dancing -- and
      it's FREE.

      Afterwards, there will also be a DJ'ed dance party with $5 admission.

      Saturday and Sunday we shift to the Lake Merritt Dance Center, and of
      course, the workshop with Frankie. Offered again this year is an
      expanded set of elective classes: from Balboa to Blues, Partner Stealing
      to Tango and Cha-Cha, there are sure to be classes that will appeal to
      dancers of all levels.

      Saturday night will also feature The 3rd Annual Shiny Stockings Swing
      Ball, with the swingin' sounds of a 17-pc big band orchestra, led by
      drummer Harold Jones, who has played and recorded with such notables as
      Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Williams, and Ray Charles.

      In conjunction with the Doghouse (which WILL be CLOSED Feb 12th), Lake
      Merritt Dance Center, we expect the LMDC's art deco styled ballroom to
      be jumpin'!

      There are two ways to register for the workshop/dance:

      The fastest and most convenient way is online through PayPal by visiting:
      http://www.ncls.com - once again, the deadline for online registration
      is Feb 8th.

      Or, the mail-in-a-check method (the registration form is in
      downloadable PDF format) - must be postmarked by Feb 4th.

      Individual tickets for the Shiny Stockings Swing Ball are $30 at the
      door (if there are any remaining!), $25 in advance at Swing Central, 920
      Special, 200 Grand, Doghouse, and Lindy in the Park.

      Note that the ticket is $20 when purchased as part of a workshop
      package, which includes the full weekend pass, or Saturday or Sunday
      only w/ticket passes. The $20 price is also available to students with a
      valid ID, and can only be purchased at the above-listed venues.
