THE POSSE ROUTINE PERFORMANCE!
FEATURING CHESTER WHITMORE

Many of you know and love The Posse. Many of you are The Posse. Maybe you don't know the Posse. Well, they started as a group of Rusty's students and regulars who met on the dancefloor and formed a strong bond through the spirit of Lindy Hop. They shout, "Posse Up!" when they take group pictures at Rusty's or wherever they might be. And now they have collaborated with world-famous Lindy Hopper and choreographer, Chester Whitmore to create a dance routine just for them, called The Posse Routine..

THE POSSE ROUTINE

The Posse has been hard at work learning and polishing this routine, and in honor of Frankie Manning's birthday (see below), they will do their first performance this Wednesday at Rusty's AT 9:30pm.

Come along and cheer them on. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be dancing The Posse Routine, too!


LET'S CELEBRATE FRANKIE MANNING'S BIRTHDAY!

ABOUT THE MAN

The first sentence of Wikipedia has: "Frankie Manning (May 26, 1914 - April 27, 2009) was an American dancer, instructor, and choreographer. Manning is considered one of the founders of Lindy Hop."

To all of us Lindy Hoppers who knew him, he WAS the Lindy Hop.

If you ever met him, you never forgot him. Even in his 80s and 90s, his bear hug could crunch every bone in your body... believe me, I know! I looked forward to those hugs every time I saw him. And his laugh, well, it was simply the best, most bouyant you ever heard.

If you never got to meet him, here's a short video that gets right to it! CLICK HERE
