    In the early days of swing dancing, Frankie Manning stood out for his moves and innovative routines; he introduced the air step in the Lindy hop, a dance that took the US and then the world by storm. In this fascinating autobiography, choreographer and Tony Award winner (Black and Blue) Manning recalls how his first years of dancing as a teenager at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom led to his becoming chief choreographer and a lead dancer for Whitey's Lindy Hoppers.
