Norma Miller 100th Birthday
December 2nd, 2019 will be Norma’s 100th Birthday and we will dedicate the day to activities that celebrate all things NORMA! MORE SURPRISES TO COME!!
The Norma Miller Dancers
Norma formed the Norma Miller Dancers in 1940 and appeared the following year in the breathtaking Lindy Hop sequence in the film Hellzapoppin’. We will have some of the Norma Miller Dancers joining us for a LED discussion on Life with Norma and other Lindy Hop history.
Join Mickey Davidson and the Norma Miller dancers as they tell stories about life on the road with Norma!
The NORMAlizer contest
This Harvest Moon Ball-style contest is open to anyone! Dancers register as couples and will dance to music selected by ILHC. This is a no-holds barred competition. All lifts, drops, aerials, airsteps and acrobatics are allowed. Judges will be looking for great dancing spontaneity, creativity and connection to the music.
BATTLE OF THE BANDS!!!
For the first time ever, Michael Gamble and the Rhythm Serenaders Big Band will battle the Jonathan Stout Orchestra. 80+ years ago at the Savoy Ballroom there was an infamous Big Band Battle between Benny Goodman and Chick Webb. Another famous battle took place a year later between Chick Webb and Count Basie. People talked about these battles for years! Be there to witness in person this once in a lifetime epic battle!
