Stompin’ at the Savoy

Category: dances

This week the BSC steps back in time, to the 1930s and the Savoy Ballroom.  Dress-vintage…our DJs will bring their best Savoy Ballroom-inspired music to keep your feet jumpin’ to the Lindy Hop.   This was THE era.  Known as the “Home of the “Happy Feet”.  The Savoy Ballroom was the epicenter for swing dancing.  It’s where Frankie Manning got started and where he later joined the amazing performance troupe, Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.  It was also famous for a supreme battle of the bands facing off Bennie Goodman, Count Basie and Chick Webb.  And the general concesus was that Chick Webb’s band won handily.  We’ll try our best to recreate that feeling.

Kellian and Brian will be teaching our lesson this evening.
