Reyna Núñez, 2023 FMF Scholar

Frankie Manning, known as “the Ambassador of Lindy hop,” accomplished much in his long and rich life yet did not feel his personal mission was completed until people were dancing the Lindy hop all around the world. Frankie is gone, but the popularity of the dance continues to grow. To encourage this continued growth, and fulfill Frankie’s dream, the Frankie Manning Foundation has established a scholarship fund to develop new Scholars/Ambassadors of Lindy hop who will bring the dance to new populations, both around the world and in African American communities in the US.
