Frankie 100 –Toronto Recap!
I hope everyone had a lovely Frankie100 weekend! Here in Toronto we had a fantastic dance on Saturday evening. We danced the night away to the amazing sounds of the George Lake Big Band, learned some new Frankie style moves thanks to Reesa and James, kept an eye on the fun and dance going on in New York, were dazzled by performances by Lindy Hop Revolution’s Frankie Fantabulous and Hogtown Swing- Hogtown City Stomperz, danced to some tunes spun by Arthur while the band took a break and broke out our best moves for the Lindy Chorus in honour Frankie Manning. After the band was finished, DJ Steve closed the evening with a few tunes.
It was a very full house this evening! Check out this collection of pictures and video clips from the dance:
