Join Bob and the team for a two-and-a-half-hour workshop to learn the Shim Sham stroll at All Hallows School, Farnham!

This is THE classic jazz era stroll, which started life as an ensemble routine for tap dancers performing at shows and was adopted by dancers in the nightclubs of the 1930s. Legendary original-era lindy hopper Frankie Manning made sure to share this routine with a new generation of dancers when swing started to become popular again in the 1980s and 90s. It's a must-know routine for all swing dancers.

This workshop is taking place before the next Mytchett Tea Dance, so you can learn at our workshops and join in at the next social dance!

The Shim Sham is most frequently danced to the Jimmie Lunceford version of Tain't What You Do (It's The Way That You Do It) or the Erskine Hawkins version of Tuxedo Junction from the original Big Band era. More recently, Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra created The Shim Sham Song which is designed around the routine!
