I can't believe that it's really time again for another rockin' year of Lindyfest!!! You've been waiting patiently...and now's the time to release the Lindyfest schedule!!! We've brought back the handy dandy schedule maker so you can pick and choose your personalized schedule and email till your heart's a flutter with joy!!

Registration is still open at $159 until March 5th and includes three days of workshops, two nights dancing to Jonathan Stout and his Campus Five, a hit Saturday evening performance and much, much more!!

Instructors and Special Guests
We are very pleased to have 18 instructors and several special guests joining us for Lindyfest! Legendary performer, Norma Miller, Frankie Manning biographer, Cynthia Millman, Frankie Manning: Never Stop Swinging director, Julie Cohen, SavoyStyle.com owner Judy Pritchett, and Harlem preservationist, Lana Turner.

Don't Miss:
The HSDS produced documentary, Frankie Manning: Never Stop Swinging, will be screened Friday, March 12th with Director Julie Cohen in attendance. Legend meets Lindy Hop in this 30-minute “documentary of dance” featuring Frankie Manning, a man who, in the words of director Julie Cohen, “truly LIVED every moment of his life.” The documentary features the last major interview of Frankie Manning before his death, as well as precious archival footage of his dancing from the 1930’s to 2009 in New York, Hollywood, Sweden, France, Italy and Singapore. Footage highlights include scenes of Manning’s birthday parties, where he danced with one woman for each year he’d been alive, the legendary dance scene choreographed and headlined by Manning for the film “Hellzapoppin,” and the phenomenal duet with his 76-year-old son, Chazz, himself a professional dancer. Frankie was a born storyteller, with a huge smile and an even bigger laugh.

Frankie Manning Tribute Class
We have all felt the loss of Frankie Manning last year just before his 95th birthday. HSDS would like to remember all of the joy that he brought to us each and every year of Lindyfest! So, we have asked all of our instructors to create a special class that focuses on the impact Frankie had on their dancing. It could be their favorite Frankie moves or inspirational moments. We hope everyone can make it to some of these classes as each one is unique. Let's all share in the joy that Frankie gave to us in the Lindy Hop.

Lindyfest DJs
We are excited to announce our DJ line-up!! DJs Jesse Miner (San Francisco, CA), Freddie Dickinson (Seattle, WA), Ryan "Swifty" Swift (NYC, NY) and George "Whitey" White (Austin, TX)!! Make sure to look out for the DJ schedules posted near the doors. You won't want to miss your favorite DJs spin!!

We look forward to seeing everyone in Houston in just a couple weeks!!
