The Spirit Grooves 2020 – 16th & 17th May 2020

A whole weekend of workshops and social dancing to celebrate Frankie Month, with none other than Frankie Manning’s son himself, Mr Chazz Young, supported by JiveSwing Instructors Joseph & Charlotte(UK). 

Having learnt from Chazz since the 1990’s, then worked together at various events since then, Joseph & Charlotte have been working with Chazz to develop some unique workshops. 

You’ll gain a number of classic Lindy Hop, Tap, Jazz moves and , routines, along with the history gained from Chazz, Frankie and Norma, through Chazz’s and Joseph & Charlotte’s own experiences with them all. 

In addition to Chazz, we are also bringing’s Frankie’s Grandaughter Michellene Young, to assist us during the History Talks.

Profits from this event will be donated to Chazz, to support his ongoing care, so please share this page with every dancer you know.
