Let's talk about...World Lindy Hop Day
The World Lindy Hop Day (WLHD) initiative was the brain child of Sing Lim and was supported by the board of the Frankie Manning Foundation. The aim was to inaugurate an annual event that would embrace the legacy of Frankie Manning, bringing his vision to a wider public. Just weeks before the first event was set to happen, it was cancelled. This came as a shock to many, but to a few it was inevitable. Unfortunately, it also came at a personal cost to those involved.
The Lindy Hop Community has grown exponentially from a local cottage industry to a global community over the past 5 - 10 years. As a Global Lindy Hop Community, how do we manage this type of situation? What effect does it have on us, (if any) as individuals, local communities, teachers etc.? We will be considering these and other questions that have arisen around the world in the short time since the cancellation of WLHD.
Come to the 1st edition of the Discussions and share your voice for the development of our scene.
Special Guest: Sing Lim and Ryan Francois
