The Shim Sham is a line dance choreographed by Willie Bryant and Leonard Reed for tap dancers and swing dancers. Popularized in the swing world by our patron Grandfather of Lindy Hop, the late Frankie Manning!

Lindy 1′s theme is *THE* Shim Sham (a.k.a Frankie Manning’s Shim Sham)

Lindy 2′s theme is Dean Collins’ Shim Sham, a.k.a. the prettiest line dance you ever saw.

We’ll teach the line dance as well as show you how to use it in your Lindy Hop.
