FTW 2013 – May 24th to 26th
With special guests Chazz Young & music by Gordon Webster!
All proceeds from the weekend go to The Frankie Manning Foundation.
FRANKIE MANNING, AMBASSADOR OF LINDY HOP: 1914-2009
Legendary Lindy hopper Frankie Manning passed away on April 27, 2009, one month before his 95th birthday. Read more about Frankie Manning here.
In true Frankie Manning fashion, this weekend will be a tribute the joy of Lindy Hop dancing, incredible swing music and to the great man himself. Celebrate Frankie’s 99th birthday and the unstoppable spirit that just keeps on inspiring us!
A one, a two, you know what to do!
This year we are thrilled to welcome Chazz Young back to Toronto for the first time since his workshop with Frankie in 2006. And we couldn’t be happier than to welcome back Gordon Webster who will be playing on both Friday and Saturday night!
