Optional Shim Sham Workshop @ 7:30 (before dance)

The Shim Sham is a jazz line dance that started in the 20's 30's. Tap dancers, on their free night together, would get together and groove with these moves. Swing dancers, such as Frankie Manning have modified the steps and incorporated it for swing danceres. Simone learned this dance from Frankie in the 90's and has taught and led this dance for the New York Swing Dance Society and brought it over to Jersey. Swing dancers all over the world are familiar with this dance. It's fun!
