Frankie 100th Birthday & Lindy Chorus
We're approaching the 100th birthday of the father of Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning! The Centennial Celebrations team calls out to Lindy communities around the world to learn and record the performance of the Lindy Chorus, a routine choreographed by Frankie especially for lindy hoppers. The Centennial Celebrations team will then combine all the recordings together into one special video, a tribute to Frankie that will show how Lindy Hop caught on all around the world and made Frankie's dream come true.
Do you want to be in that landmark video? Then come to the 15-minute free lessons that will be held during the dance parties on the other side of the dividing wall, starting this week. Frankie made the choreo accessible to dancers of all skill levels, anyone can participate! And the best part? He choreographed it to the song called... Wednesday Night Hop! Yep, we pretty much have to do it!
