Thank you so much for coming to the workshop, everyone!
It feels great to share Frankie Manning’s story, moves, musicality, and inspiration any time of year, but especially in May for #FrankieMonth. It felt especially *right* to offer a free workshop and I think I’ll make it an annual tradition. That was the largest group we’ve had out dancing in St. Catharines in several years–about 50 people.
We had participants from Rochester, Tonawanda, Hamilton, Toronto, a borrowed dancer from Swing Mexico, and of course from all over the Niagara region. Thank you to everyone who came out, and for your donations to the Frankie Manning Foundation which amounted to $351 CAD.
Special thanks to Lisa Jacobs for teaching with me, Geoffrey Holmes for also stepping up to the plate, and Curtis Carter for arranging the venue.
The Frankie Manning Foundation has thanked everyone for their donation. The money will help to support youth programming and spreading Lindy Hop in underrepresented communities.
