From Monday 14th May we’re going to be tackling the king of solo jazz routines, The Big Apple!
It started out as a call and response dance but was then immortalised as a stand alone routine when choreographed by Frankie Manning and performed by Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers for the 1939 film Keep Punchin’. It’s now known and danced by lindy hoppers all over the world and is soon to join the Reading swing scene repertoire!
This is a beast of a routine so we ask attendees to arrive early so we can start promptly and make the most of the time we have.
All welcome! No experience necessary! Just wear comfy clothes and shoes that stay on your feet and bring a drink – a fan or towel might be useful tool. We highly recommend a notebook and pen to make notes as we go along!
