Happy Birthday Frankie Manning! May 28 2014
Frankie Manning is dancing in heaven! Yes he is ! The biggest and most amazing birthday party NYC (and probably the world) has ever seen has recently finished (and we are still recovering).
New york city held five days of non stop craziness that included great shows in historical places where lindy hop was born like the Apollo theatre and the Cotton Club up in East Harlem. Live Bands that would play ALL NIGHT LONG till 4 am, such as Gordon Webster, The Carling Family Band and the George Gee Orchestra.Amazing all levels lessons, and a crazy fast hellzappoping comptetition won by Soochan Lee and Hyun Jung Choi from Korea
We could not believe our eyes when more than two thousand slices of a sweet potato pie we have only heard about in songs where served just before midnight. All of a sudden blue and yellow ballons filled the air and flown vividly up and down three storages at Terminal 5 while people from over 47 nations from Seoul to Argentina sang together the happy birthday. All, to honor a man we will always love and keep his memory alive. The one and only Frankie Manning!
