Wanna see me dance?

Once upon a time there was a group of BYU students who were hep to the jive. They loved to swing and wanted to show their appreciation to one of the greatest swing dancers of all-time, Frankie Manning (http://www.frankiemanning.com/bio.php). This year marks Frankie's 95th birthday and as a tribute to this marvelous man, swing communities across the globe learned his "Shim Sham" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjfM4Wrj9UI&feature=related), recorded themselves, and sent it in to Frankie. So the BYU Swing Kids made a video because we also love Frankie! Hope you enjoy the dance!
