Performance – California Routine

California Routine
The California Routine as we know it is a fascinating mix of Frankie Manning’s choreographies in Hollywood, Al Minns’ lessons to the Swedish group, The Rhythm Hot Shots, and close calls and misnomers danced in preserved film footage. Wherever it came from, this partnered routine is a classic for swing performance groups the world over. Come learn to dance this energetic routine (sans air steps) and flex your Lindy/Charleston chops!

PRE-REQUISITES: Students should have familiarity with Swing Outs, Lindy Hop 8 and 6 count basics, as well as some Charleston to participate.
