This February discover Seattle's swing events:
Savoy Swing Club Events
Ana Lisa Sutherland and Joshua Mclean have one phrase for you: HELLA🏽BLACK🏾LINDY🏿HOP!
Remember it well, because for February’s classes they will be focusing on the contributions and lives of two of the most influential African American Lindyhoppers and Jazz Performers: Norma Miller and Frankie Manning.
Ana Lisa and Josh are looking forward to share with you some of the astonishing anecdotes, cool choreography, and damn good dancing that Frankie and Norma have graced the original and contemporary Lindy Hop communities with. We believe that learning about them is an essential part to learning Lindy Hop, and getting a little closer to that “Hella Black” spirit.
Come to Savoy Mondays every Monday at 7:00pm for these specials classes!
