Join us on Thursdays to learn the Al & Leon Shim Sham!

This variation on the original Shim Sham will expand your knowledge of Jazz steps + give you a fun routine to learn.

Al Minns & Leon James were a prominent Black dance duo who were famous for their Lindy Hop and Vernacular Jazz. They danced at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem and were members of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers. This is their version of the Shim Sham!

No prior dance experience or knowledge of the original Shim Sham is required.
