SWING INVASION collects the best of the best of Swing Era and before in performances that dazzle and amaze both dancers and the musicians of today. Produced for TV, just like our PBS this documentaries, the cast includes Frankie Manning, the originator of Harlem's dance later to be known as Jitterbug. Fayard Nicholas, the oldest brother of the dance duo The Nicholas Brothers, is most well known for his graceful arm movements later copied by Fred Astaire. Dawn Hampton is still dancing! I saw her in 2013 on her 85th birthday in New York. Chazz Young, Frankie Mannings son, at 81, showed off that he's still got it at the 25th Anniversary of Midsummer Nights Swing 2013 at Lincoln Center. The Harlem Blues and Jazz Band comprised of "originals" that actually "jumped" at the Woodside and "stomped" at the Savoy, are caught in a live performance while on tour. A must see to realize that American dance began in Harlem and traveled around the world influencing and to compile this footage.
