LOCATION: Ripley Grier Studios 520 Eighth Ave
Recognizing the Late Great Norma Miller, The Queen of Swing, this workshop is In preparation for the LIVE demo to honor Ms. Miller on Saturday MAY 25 Swing Remix.
“Ms. Miller, known as the “Queen of Swing,” was the youngest recruit and last survivor of the original Lindy Hoppers, the all-black Herbert White troupe that broke in at Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom and popularized the Lindy Hop in Broadway shows, on tours of Europe and Latin America, and in Hollywood films.”
“Ms. Miller was among the last links to the glory days of Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom, a racially integrated dance hall where big bands led by Chick Webb and Benny Goodman dueled from opposing stages, fueling the steps of jitterbug dancers who bounded across the maple-and-mahogany hardwood under crystal chandeliers.”
Instructor Sing Lim
Lindy Hop veteran from Singapore
