World Lindy Hop Day Celebration
GET READY TO PARTY FOR WORLD LINDY HOP DAY!
We’re super excited to be celebrating World Lindy Hop Day this year (which is also a celebration of Frankie Manning’s birthday). Because of that we’re going to bring you a day, and night, of Lindy Hopping fun! Come to one or come to both!
We’re going to fire up your day with a special celebration of Frankie Manning with our Frankie’s Favourites Workshop taught by Shane & Ruth. Shane & Ruth will be teaching moves taught to them by Frankie Manning himself!
Then, in the evening, it’s time for some dancing followed by a super fun movie night where we’ll be watching the 1940s classic, Hellzapoppin’! Hellzapoppin’ is the film featuring the greatest Lindy Hop performance in history.
