Lindy Hop Values – a #FrankieMonth initiative

Like Frankie Manning himself, we value:

  • Having fun dancing the Lindy hop
  • Historic authenticity in Lindy hop dancing and music
  • Improvisation and continued innovation
  • Close relationship between the music and the dance
  • Maintaining a true community among dancers
  • Mutual respect and cooperation
  • Inclusivity (diverse backgrounds: geographic, ethnic, socio-economic, age, ability, LGBTQ, gender roles, etc.)
  • Outreach and welcome to newcomers
  • Excellence, which can be encouraged through friendly competition
