“The Al Minns & Leon James Shim Sham”

Michael Jagger teaches “Al Minns & Leon James Shim Sham”
Saturday, April 24th, 2021
1:00pm – 2:30pm EST

Al Minns and Leon James were two prominent Jazz and Lindy Hop dancers from Harlem. And while they might be best known as dancers in the famous Lindy Hop performance troupe, Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, they were also amazing solo dancers, with several great routines in their canon.

Michael will be teaching their unique version of the Shim Sham, which makes reference to the classic version of the Shim Sham, but there will be plenty of fun variations and new steps to excite even the most seasoned of dancers. All levels will be welcomed, but we do recommend that you familiarize yourself with the classic Shim Sham prior to attending this workshop.

The cost of this workshop is $25 US dollars. Simply register your monthly account at Syncopated City. This will also give you a month of Membership to our site, allowing you to see recaps and break down videos plus full access to our entire catalogue of Swing Dance lessons (which includes the classic Lindy Shim Sham).
