We “hopped on the boat” for Frankie’s birthday!


On Tuesday 27th May the second Hop on the Boat took place on the Nijmeegse Boot, this time to celebrate what would have been Frankie Manning’s 100th birthday. Starting as usual with a taster class for beginners, we danced the swingin’ night away.The evening had it all: bounce, swing, smiles and laughter, a shim sham and even a birthday swing jam! Thanks to everyone who came, especially to our dancing friends from out-of-town. Don’t just take our word for it, check out the video below. Happy birthday Frankie!
