RETRO SWING KID & COMPANY:
Retro Swing Kid started teaching Frankie Manning style swing dance in 1998 with 3 other Lindy Hoppers. The rest is history! All the company have received extensive Lindy Hop training! The Kid was trained by Frankie Manning, Tonya Morris and many other international Lindy Hop instructors. Instructor training for teaching swing dance for lead and follow from beginner to advanced was received from Graeme Oxendale. At present the Kid leads and follows at an advanced level. Intermediate A, B & C leading was obtained from Rhythm City. The Kid still takes the Lab classes at Rhythm City both as a lead and follow and can be seen dancing lead and follow most Thursday nights at Rhythm City Strut. I highly recommend the Rhythm City Mess Around in the Fall, Lindy Bout in the spring and Camp Jitterbug in Seattle on Memorial Day weekend.
