What is the Shim Sham?

In the mid-1980s, Frankie Manning introduced the shim sham at New York Swing Dance Society dances, and he also created a special version of the shim sham for swing dancers. Frankie Manning's version of the shim sham caught on, and it's now done at swing dances worldwide.

Check out this video of Frankie Manning leading the Shim Sham at Herrang Dance Camp in 2007: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r-ID93N4FA

What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy hop is the granddaddy of all swing dances, a blend of African and European dance influences that is both uniquely American... and now spans the globe.

Lindy hop is joyful and playful! Lindy has a grounded, flowing style that closely reflects its music -- from the late 20s hot jazz to the early 40s big bands.
