Frankie Manning

Frankie Manning died yesterday, April 27th. He was a month shy of his 95th birthday. There were (and are) celebrations planned, which will now become memorials.

My partner and I started taking swing lessons a good 7-8 years ago, and we’ve probably taken a few workshops a year since then. We go dancing occasionally (a couple weeks ago, last). We’re not great, but it’s great fun, and a good 8-count lindy swing out is one of the great feelings of cute-and-cool on the dance floor.

Go out and dance a little, ok?
