Cost: $35/person

Location: The Longwood Ballroom

The Shim Sham is a jazz era dance routine originally done by Vaudeville performers in the early 1900’s. While there are many variations of the Shim Sham around today, the version popular amongst swing dancers and Lindy Hoppers is a solo group dance (dare we say “line”?) that incorporates various jazz steps. In this three week class, Anna and Shelley will teach you the whole dance from time steps, to cross-overs and Tacky Annies. The focus will be on the Frankie Manning version as it’s the most common seen on the dance floor. You’ll get a chance to practice it as a group step-by-step until you have it down pat. You’ll even learn a few areas where you can improv or do variations.

What’s it look like? Watch a video of Frankie himself leading it! Or maybe a few advanced variations and alternates.

This is a solo/group jazz dance, so no partner is needed and beginners are welcome. No previous dance experience is needed.

Price & Registration: Advance registration is now closed. You may still register for the class by showing up and paying the Day-of rate ($40) by either cash or check (no credit or debit cards can be accepted). For questions, please call 407-766-9849 or email lessons@FlyinFootwork.com.

“For many years Linda and I have tried taking Swing Dance lessons. We have always found that the method of instruction was complicated, boring, and expensive....in many cases drawn-out to keep you coming back as customers (clients). One night we attended Rob & Dawn's class. By the end of a one-hour class we had learned at least 6 very cool Lindy moves. The class was extremely fun and very well presented. We finally found what we were looking for....and have since learned over 30 Lindy moves Their method of instruction is excellent....and, their price is unbeatable.”
