18th Framiversary - Free Admission!

Happy birthday Frim Fram! Well, we don't know a better way to celebrate us and all of YOU than having the party be FREE. So we are doing it!

In lieu of admission, we are asking everyone to donate to the Frankie Manning Foundation to help support the next generation of Lindy Hoppers and elders in our community in need.

Everyone has opinions about music, so it will be a request night! DJ Ryan Swift will be accepting your requests in the comments of this event. NO BANANAPHONE!

Did someone say dance contest? Yup! We will have our traditional dance contest with insane prizes!

Let there be cake! We will have enough Red Velvet for everyone, as tradition dictates!

Drop-in lesson at 8 pm taught by Heather Flock ($5) MAY have 18 fun figures in it.

We can't wait to see you there, RSVP on Facebook!
