Frankie's 99th Birthday!
May 26th is the birthday of legendary Lindy Hopper, Frankie Manning, who sadly passed away just short of his 95th birthday. The modern swing scene owes so much to this wonderful man, and the global community is coming together to celebrate with a giant birthday bash!
To find out about the global event visit: www.frankiesbirthday.com
Ewa Burak and Lennart Westerlund (students of Frankie's) have created the "Global 99 Choreo", which is a combination of some of Frankie's favourite moves. We will be teaching this in Level 2, filming it at The Stomp, and submitting it to the Frankie bday pool! We want as many people to come along, so this will be a FREE CLASS!
Then in Level 1, we'll be busting out the good 'ol Shim Sham, made popular by Frankie himself! No experience required, and for those of you who know the Shim Sham we'll put in some variations and stylings to spice it up for you.
Level 2 @ 7.00pm - The Global 99 Choreo FREE CLASS!
Level 1 @ 8.0pm - The Shim Sham (with bonus variations!)
Social dancing from 9.00pm
Estonian Hall, 200 Jeffcott Street, North Adelaide
Bring along some party food - I think we need a birthday cake! :D
Swing Sesh Meet 'n' Greet - The Great Gatsby
It's been a while since
our last Swingin' Soiree, and we figured the opulent 1920s style movie
"The Great Gatsby" would be a perfect outing!
