Rusty's Rhythm Club's founder, the hyperqualified Rusty Frank, took to dancing at the tender age of 6, and has been light-tripping professionally since her college days. Since then, she has been inducted into the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame and has performed in locations from the Hollywood Bowl to Disneyland and other worldwide locales. Rusty is joined in instruction by her effusive teachers, Ted Stanley and Ron Campbell, who bear multitudinous dancing awards as well as an actual portal to 1920s-1940s America.
They impart the dancing skills of the 1940s at both Rusty's Rhythm Club, a weekly swing dance emporium, and Lindy by the Sea beginning-class series, a dance school for all experience levels. Rusty's Rhythm Club sharpens soles with an all-ages dance fest accompanied by the tunes and Prohibition-era conversational topics of live bands in the air-conditioned Westchester Elks Lodge in Playa del Rey.
For Angelina D?Arcy, art serves as an outlet for both relaxation and communication. Her own work combines the abstractions in the world around her with the simple lines of flowers, calling to mind masters ranging from van Gogh to Georgia O?Keefe. When she?s not creating and exhibiting her own artwork, Angelina shares her passion with amateur artists through painting workshops. During classes, she teaches sketching, painting, and color-mixing techniques, along with art theory. She also unlocks deeper techniques during abstract art and self-portrait classes, which force students to take a closer look at themselves and then turn their features into expressive squiggles. Angelina embraces art away from the studio, too; in her free time, she works as a volunteer committee member of the local Foundation of Local Arts (FOLA) and helps people heal through a program with Free Arts for Abused Children.
Since sprouting in South Bay in 2004, Wondertree Kids has been an interactive space for youngsters to learn about and discover the fascinating world around them.

Age-appropriate exercises are woven into the fabric of every activity, including messy art classes, school-preparation courses, and music programs, where kids can safely practice their moves instead of breakdancing in the subway.
