Friday Night Waltz

Friday Night Waltz should be awesome this week. Richard is teaching:
7pm - In honor of Frankie Manning who passed away this week, Richard will teach Frankie's version of the Shim Sham Shimmy, which we'll all do during this evening's dance. We mourn Frankie's loss but also celebrate how much positive influence one person can have on the world.

8pm - Blues. We'll have time in an hour to look at several kinds of traditional blues dancing, both old and new, including waltz-time blues.

I never got to learn shim sham before, so I'm much looking forward to that and getting to honor Frankie. I can only hope I'm still dancing at 94.


  • It sounds great. Why is it on the Friday of May 1st when I'm planning on getting up early to watch the Morris dancers. Lots of good dancing that day. I may have to nap in the afternoon.

    It was sad, but it was a wonderful way to spend 20-30 years dancing and teaching others to dance and helping create that much joy. You can't ask for much more than that. I hope to dance that well at 94 as well.
