Fresno Swing Dance is changing for the better! Our dance lessons will now be on Thursday Night at Mia Cuppa Cafe in the Tower District. You can enjoy coffee, tea, and other food items while you dance and listen to jazz music. We have restructured the dance lessons to make the dance much easier to learn.

I’m excited to introduce more people to this dance I fell in love with over three years ago!


5/20/14 Downtown/Tower District Fresno,California


Yesterday’s pull from the Vineyard Farmers Market. #local #seasonal #organic #fresno #eatgoodgrub (at Taste Kitchen)

A local business using locally-grown ingredients. Taste Kitchen is located 805 E. Olive Ave., Fresno (In the Tower District). 


This dude is rad. 

He looks like he has a bad-ass story or two. 


Lunch time (at Piemontes italian delicatessen {official})

Tower District staple. 


The OG Classic from back in the day. Niman Ranch angus beef, Niman Ranch bacon, Bravo Farms cheddar, crispy onions, chipotle 3K, & a Max’s bun. Simple, but delectable.

Ingredients from California. :)

Taste Kitchen is located in the Pinot Wine Bar of Tower District.

Fresno Filmworks shared this movie screening with me on Facebook. This is what they told me: “If you like to watch awkward 20-something to try to awkwardly figure out work, life, and relationships on the big screen, this is the event for you.” Ha! With that kind of description, I knew I had to share on tumblr. ;)

Fresno Filmworks does a great job with bringing indie and foreign films to Fresno. Like them on facebook for event updates. 

Fresno Swing Dance at JazzHop!

Chris, Kellie, and I had a meeting with the coordinator of Fresno’s JazzHop, to-day. It looks like Fresno Swing Dance will be dancing the night away at future JazzHops! Ideally, we would like to dance outside of the Tower Theatre or at Revue Cafe.

We’re hoping this will boost the atmosphere of JazzHop and attract potential members of Fresno’s Lindy Hop community. The community, here, is still in its infancy stage and there are a dozen regular dancers. 

#Fresno Film Festival is taking place, this weekend, in the Tower District!

This is like no other event in Fresno. Jefferson Beavers, board member, introduced me to the organization. Thanks to him, my friend and I attended the viewing of Oscar-nominated shorts, back in March. It was an amazing event! And it was my first time at the Tower Theatre. It was an amazing opportunity!

Fresno Filmworks does a great introducing independent films to Fresno. This is something organizers felt was lacking in our culture. 

My sister’s and friend’s event, under “poems, poetry and fiction” made Fresno Bee’s 7 Promising Picks for the Rogue Festival!

The Chicano Writers and Artists Association, from Fresno State, will read their pieces at Spectrum Art Gallery. March 1st at 8:45 pm and March 2nd at 2:30 pm and 10 pm. There is a $5 event charge.
