This fortnight’s variation is the Birdie!
Gracefully flapping bird wings optional
Also known as the Hangman
This course was a special addition to the lineup last year and definitely a keeper! We’ll spend the whole four weeks working on some of Frankie Manning’s signature moves.
Who was Frankie Manning? He was one of the greatest lindy hoppers of his time (he was the first to add air steps to the dance!). He was also hugely instrumental in the swing revival. As a young man he performed all over with Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, in his later years he traveled the world teaching at lindy hop events, large and small, nearly every weekend. He became known as the Ambassador of Swing and even got his own google doodle a couple of years ago. Come along and learn some of Frankie’s classic moves.
The Frankie’s Moves Course is appropriate for dancers who are comfortable with the basics and ready to add some new classic moves to their repertoire.
