A swing story

Having just spent a wonderful weekend dancing at the London Lindy Exchange, today I’m taking a moment to mourn the death of Frankie Manning, the international ambassador of Swing Dance.

The name of this site is a kind of spoonerism of Jitterbug: another name for Lindy Hop, the original Swing Dance.

Below is a video, by Jules Kerssemakers, that I have been toying with the idea of posting here for a while, of myself and Sam Flint mucking about at The Speakeasy in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago.

Thank you Frankie, you will be much missed
