Our beloved Frankie Manning, the "Ambassador of Swing" passed away this morning in New York just 1 month shy of his 95th birthday celebration.
I wrote about his influence in our lives a while back...click here to read the post.
Please take a moment to watch this great video tribute which was made 15 years ago to commemorate Frankie's 80th b-day.
Swing dancing is an American folk art that I never want to forget...thank you Frankie for being an inspiration to me, my children and many around the world. You will be missed!
