b. 5-26-1914; Jacksonville, FL
d. 4-27-2009; NYC

Frankie Manning, a dancer, teacher and choreographer, is remembered as one of the founders of the Lindy Hop, a dance that got its name from aviator Charles Lindbergh's “hop” of the Atlantic Ocean in 1927.

Manning, and his partner Frieda Washington, performed the first air step (an aerial) in a swing dance competition. He also worked with singer/dancer Norma Miller, known as the “Queen of Swing”.

Frankie Manning quote ~
• “I never taught people where to step on '2', because when I learned how to dance there was no '2'. We just danced to the music.”
