Shim Sham Workshop

Some fabulous dancers doing the Shim Sham

On Wednesday, March 23rd, Swing Ann Arbor will not be holding a beginner drop-in lesson or our usual social dance. INSTEAD, Chien-yi Tsai and Clarisse Jorah will be teaching us the Shim Sham!

What IS the Shim Sham?
The Shim Sham is a swing line dance that was originally choreographed by Al and Leon and galvanized by Frankie Manning, the ambassador of Lindy Hop. If you’ve attended our dances before, you’ve probably seen it! It is a routine that every swing dancer should be familiar with and is a great gateway to solo jazz. What does it look like?
