Back to the Roots: Dancers Edition

MAR 20 – MAY 29

BACK TO THE ROOTS - DANCER'S EDITION (1)

Mondays at Rude Bar, 79 Wyndham St (doors open to Pottinger St). 8-9pm
Do you recognise all the faces above?
You may have heard of Frankie Manning, but there were many people who made significant contributions to swing and lindy hop as we know it today.
Join us as we pay tribute to these and other great dancers, their stories and their legacies.
Where did this dance we love so much come from? What inspired the dance when it was revived in the late 1980s? This new series will you help you find inspiration for your own dancing. We’ll be dancing as well as watching some vintage video clips together. Sessions will be led by Yancy.
All are welcome to these free sessions, but please buy drinks to support the bar!
Social dance follows, from 9-11pm
