3. Shim Shams: The Series (730-9pm, Wednesdays@Popstars City)
The Shim Sham Shimmy as it was called, started out as a Tap routine in the 1930s, made popular by Willie Bryant and Leonard Reed, before it became a standard for Lindy Hoppers around the world after the 1980s revival, with a special jazz segment added to it by the legendary Frankie Manning. Since then there have been a few remakes of the shim sham. But even before the revival, there were several “versions” of the shim sham that became popular, one known as the Al and Leon Shim Sham, a.k.a. the Savoy Shim Sham, and the other called the Dean Collins Shim Sham. We will teach these traditional routines in the months of July and August, so do bring out your dancing shoes and swing by! No experience needed for the courses
