Frankie Manning, A Lindy Hop Legend, passed away April 27, 2009

Frankie Manning Rest in Peace.... May 26, 1914 - April 27, 2009

Frankie Manning, one of the great Lindy Hoppers has passed. We will miss him dearly. He was an inspiration to us all. He passed on the torch to us, lets keep it alive. Rest in Peace Frankie, you had an amazing life, and we were very lucky to have you be apart of it. Your smile will shine down from Heaven on us. We will miss you....

I had the chance to take a workshop with Frankie, Chazz and Norma Miller back in 1999. It was an amazing time, I learned scissor kicks, shim sham-Frankie style. I also had a chance to see him at Catalina Swing Camp in 2000. He was an amazing dancer who had a great laugh and smile. (Frankie is in the overalls)
