About the workshop

Learn the classic jazz line dance, the Shim Sham, in the simplified form made popular by Frankie Manning.  This easy choreography will teach new dancers basic jazz steps and how to chain them together, as well as how to hear & respond to changes in the music.

For more experienced dancers, Erica will also offer some variations on the choreography so that you can add your own flair!
