Global Shim Sham for Frankie

The Global Shim Sham for Frankie video is here!

Remember back in March when we taped our swing scene doing the shim sham to honor Frankie Manning?
We submitted it to the Frankie 95 Festival organizers to possibly use in their “Global Shim Sham” compilation that they would show to thousands of dancers and friends of Frankie at the event in May.

Well… Fort Collins Represented!!! If you look closely (and don’t blink) you’ll see us all waving our happy jazz hands around 3:35!

What a great tribute video to Frankie.

And if you missed it the first time, here is our original shim sham video:

Next entry: "Shorty George" Snowden

That is just the coolest thing… warms my heart to see people from all over the world giving some love to Frankie! It was fun to guess where some of those places are, and fun to recognize others, and awesome to see the creative places people rocked the shim sham - beach, ski slope, swimming pool, factory… you name it, we all did it!

Thank you for the nicely written article. It was very interesting and while I agree with most of the post, it sure helped me learn more for my research. I really appreciate it and thanks again.
