Elective – Al & Leon Shim Sham (solo jazz)

The most famous version of the Shim Sham was widely taught by the Ambassador of Swing himself, Frankie Manning. But there are many variations of this popular routine that will stretch your creativity and technical skill! Best of all, it can be done without a partner, and to the same songs as other shim shams, so there are plenty of opportunities to practice on the social dance floor! This month, we’ll be decoding the Al Minns and Leon James Shim Sham.

PRE-REQUISITES: Having completed 4 months of Level 1. No partner required; just bring your enthusiasm and comfortable clothes!
