CLASS 1 of 2: Some folks attend the festival alone and might still want to dance at our Swing Thing! Learn the traditional vintage solo jazz choreography the Shim Sham choreographed by Frankie Manning. You can go to any swing dance in the world and participate in this group expression of the joy of swing dancing. Frankie Manning was one of the original performing swing dancers from the late 30s and 40s and was in the group “Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.” He came out of swing dance retirement in the 90s and lead a world wide swing dance revival. Although Frankie Manning died in 2009, his love for swing dance lives on through the Shim Sham. Come join us to learn this classic dance!
