Honeymoon or Open a Studio?

Considering the exciting fact that we travel all year long, we decided that after getting married we would take an all out Homey-moon. That’s right, lets totally not get go anywhere, not get on any airplanes, not stay in any hotels, not babble in any foreign languages and just enjoy being home for more than a week. As to be expected, it was one of the most relaxing times of our lives… for a week at least. Then I got this brilliant idea to open a dance studio in Los Angeles.

Seriously, what kind of man thinks of business during such a time?

Before you judge, here this; being home, being newly wed, and being pregnant got me seriously thinking. What if we could be home more often? What better way to make that happen than opening a local small business? So I admit to Sarah that I have been sneaking around on our Homey-moon while she was at the spa. Honestly, I couldn’t go looking at venues while she and I were frolicking through the streets of downtown after a spectacular meal at Botega Louie so I snuck out and checked out a few places while she was preoccupied. Shockingly, she took the news quite well and we were off to check out a few places!

How exciting, the thought of having our own dance school! We were getting really pumped and after seeing a few places we stumbled upon the ideal venue. It was downtown, zoned for live-work, laid out well and we could build. In addition Sarah was totally on board so there was nothing stopping us at this point.

lindyloft before As you all know by now, we went for it and called it The Lindy Loft. Come check us out in Downtown Los Angeles if you are ever in town. We are teaching classes regularly and hosting some cool parties with great live music and social dancing. www.lindyloft.com

Dax bought this wheeled backpack a few months ago. I sometimes am more into the aesthetics than functionality of things but I have completely fallen in love with this carry-on. It can carry so much stuff (we can put two laptops, jackets and gadgets in it) yet is still small enough to fit under the seat in front of us if there is no space in overhead storage. It is very lightweight (which is crucial for times you have to run down a flight of stairs with it) yet the most stable wheeled bag I have used so far. I really recommend for your carry-on needs! I wish it was nicer looking but since it is technically Dax’s bag I can’t complain 😉

New Social Demo Video

Here is a new video of a social demo Sarah and I did at Atomic Ballroom in Orange county before our workshops this weekend. This is purely social, the DJ even got to surprise us with the song…which turned out to be 5 minutes long! Enjoy :)

Big Audition Coming Up! – Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance

Sarah and I are going to New York to Audition for Paula Abdul’s new Show “Live to Dance”. It is a new CBS dance show with details yet to be totally revealed. Hopefully they will be ready for some good ol’ Lindy Hop, swing and some of America’s home cooking! Of course we won’t forget to eat some of our favorite cooking at Momo Fuku, do some social dancing, and actually teach a little workshop! Going to New York City always gives me this curious energy and creative spirit. Hopefully it will allow for good things at the Audition.

Wish us Luck!
