Save the Date – Swedes in New York City

May will mark the 35 year anniversary of three Swedes, Anders Lind, Henning Sörensen, and Lennart Westerlund, visiting New York for the first time looking for the roots of the Lindy Hop. It was then that they met Al Minns and first saw Frankie Manning. Lennart’s close relationship with Frankie began soon after with a deep friendship and a 35 year legacy of studying Lindy Hop from both of their teachings. The date happened to also coincide with Frankie’s birthday, which has been an important date for all Lindy Hoppers everywhere since the revival.

The event will include:
*Traditional workshops with three generations of Swedish teachers dedicated to the New York old-school tradition, as they were taught by Frankie Manning, Al Minns, and others
*Lectures, interviews, film shows, and panel discussions on the historical context of the Jazz Era and Black roots of Lindy Hop from Harlem
*Performances and demonstrations
Visiting instructors: eWa Staremo-Burak, Mimmi Gunnarsson, Åsa Heedman, Fredrik Dahlberg, Daniel Heedman, and Lennart Westerlund
