Join us for World Lindy Hop Day!
Every year, we come together to celebrate this amazing dance, as well as the history, the historical figures and the community that have built it. As one of the prime creators of the Lindy hop, and the most influential person in swing dance history, Frankie Manning’s birthday (May 26th, 1914) is a fitting marker for World Lindy Hop Day!
To celebrate this year, we are going to screen Alive and Kicking at the Vic Cinema in Devonport, before dancing the night away at the Devonport Community House at 32 Clarence St, Devonport (8-11:30pm). Get your tickets below!
We are also excited to be running some fun workshops on Sunday the 27th - check out the details here.
