We will be teaching a Crash Course of the Big Apple routine. Choreographed by Frankie Manning in 1937, this solo dance is filled with high energy Charleston movements and intricate jazz steps. Not only is it danced here in Columbus on occasion, but you are guaranteed to see it at most big swing dance events around the world! This routine, passed down through generations of Lindy hoppers has some of the most iconic and storied moves in Lindy Hop. You will learn moves like the shim sham, gaze afar, applejacks and breezy knees. Come learn a piece of our Lindy hop history.
This routine will be taught during two 2 hour sessions, meeting on November 14th and 21st from 6:45-8:45pm.
