Keep Punching with DJs Alex Abdoulaev & Isaac Marx

Category: dances

Some of you might be scratchin’ your heads as to why we’ve called this night the perplexing title of “Keep Punching”, but those in the know will recognize this as the title of the 1939 Boxing movie featuring Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.  Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers were a dance troupe from Harlem which starred Frankie Manning, Norma Miller and many others.  And we keep mentioning Frankie because he was an inspiration to many of us and we have to let you all know about him.  So you’ll keep seeing us championing him.  In the movie Keep Punching Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers perform the Big Apple in the version that is often taught and performed today, so this is indeed a very important movie in the swing dancing world.  You can see the clip here:

Tonight, DJs Alex Abdoulaev & Isaac Marx will be sharing the spotlight and spinning the tunes. There unique styles compliment each other quite well and are guaranteed to keep you moving and grooving on the dance floor, and perhaps if there’s enough people who know the Big Apple, there will be an impromptu performance!  There are also some copacetic aerials in this scene (please no aerials on the social dance floor)…
