Initiatives and Programs
Promoting Lindy Hop
Lindy hop is spread by people who love it through scene building, media coverage, and education and resources. The Foundation encourages scene builders to share their successes and even valiant failures with other dancers, locally and internationally, on social media and in person atl dances, camps, and workshops.
To encourage continued growth of people dancing the Lindy hop all around the world, and fulfill Frankie’s dream, the Frankie Manning Foundation has established a scholarship fund to develop new Ambassadors of Lindy hop who will bring the dance to new populations, both around the world and in African-American communities in the US.
The Foundation today is a project of the Houston Swing Dance Society, a nonprofit dedicated to the promotion of swing music and dance in Houston and beyond. Their other programs listed here share similar values of the Frankie Manning Foundation.
