Join Lindy Hoppers from Swing Out to brush up on your solo moves so you can hit the hardwood in style. The class will focus on excerpts from a contest as represented in Keep Punching—a 1939 film with iconic choreography by Frankie Manning and interpretation by members of Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers. This class is open to anyone with an interest in Lindy and jazz. Participants are encouraged to wear supportive footwear and have clear space to move around at home.
This class is being offered in conjunction with the Swing Out residency.
