Chazz Young’s 80th Birthday Bash with George Gee

Tonight we taught and performed at the 80th Birthday Party of Lindy Hop celebrity, and son of Frankie Manning, Chazz Young. We started the evening off by teaching a group beginner lesson. We could already tell that it was going to be a great event when the lesson was packed with over sixty enthusiastic students. The night only got better as more and more people came to wish Chazz a happy birthday and dance to the swingin’ tunes of George Gee for hours on end. Later in the evening, we performed Beaver Junction, choreographed by Laura Jeffers, with the rest of The Big Apple Lindy Hoppers. It was an amazing experience to perform for such iconic figures like Chazz Young, Norma Miller, Chester Whitmore, Dawn Hampton, Sugar Sullivan, and Sonny Allen.
