Frankie’s Favorites

Category: dances
We are very sad to have lost our friend Frankie Manning, the world’s leading ambassador of Lindy Hop, this week.  But we’re sure that he’d want us to all keep swinging.  In his honor, we will be doing a special Shim Sham led by Tony and Aurelie during our dance this Friday.  We hope that you can all come out and join us and celebrate Frankie Manning’s life with us.

Our DJs, Ogden Sawyer, Phil Shapiro and James McClurkin will spin some of Frankie’s Favorites. Expect to hear some of his favorite music, which includes tracks by Fletcher Henderson, Count Basie, Jimmie Lunceford, George Gee and many more!  We had originiallly scheduled our Frankie’s Favorites night for May 22nd, which was the weekend of his 95th birthday celebration.

Tony and Aurelie Tye will teach our beginning lesson.

Dan Pederson and Nina Current will teach their final installment of the intermediate lesson pilot program. See our website for more details.
