Frankie Manning: Ambassador of Lindy Hop

Ambassador of Lindy Hop

The autobiography of a legendary swing dancer


Lindy hopper Frankie Manning won a 1989 Tony Award for his choreography in "Black and Blue," was honored by the National Endowment for the Arts with a National Heritage Fellowship, and served as a consultant for and danced in Spike Lee's" Malcolm X" and Debbie Allen's "Stompin' at the Savoy." Frankie's choreographic contributions to the lindy, his professional dance career with Whitey's Lindy Hoppers and the Congaroo Dancers, and his vital role in the swing dance revival have been widely chronicled in the news media, books, and documentaries, including Ken Burns's "Jazz" and an ABC News "20/20" profile. Now in his nineties, Frankie travels the world teaching the Lindy hop and sharing his riveting memories of dancing through the swing era.
Cynthia R. Millman taught dance and performed for over twenty-five years, including five years with the Big Apple Lindy Hoppers. She has studied and partnered with Frankie, and lectures with him on the history of the Lindy. A librarian at The Town School in Manhattan, Cynthia has contributed articles to "Dance Magazine" and "The International Encyclopedia of Dance," and has served as a dance consultant on several documentaries.
