The passing of Norma Miller brings an end to an era, as Norma says in this video, her and Frankie Manning were the last two of the original Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.

Norma’s funeral will be held on 24 May 2019, just two days before Frankie Manning’s birthday.

Now it’s our responsibility to keep the dance alive, and what a pleasure that is! As Frankie says, you never see a Lindy Hopper not smiling!

So in honour of the King and Queen of Swing we are offering special discounts on IpSwing Tickets from 24 to 26 May, so that you can have fun in the sun and keep the joy of swing music and dance alive and kicking.

You never need an excuse to watch Hellzapoppin, but just look at the smiles on the faces!
