Learn the California Routine


November 10, 2009 by Patrick Szmidt

No, the California Routine is not just 3 Swing Outs and a Cirle 🙂

Once again, we’ve decided to go with a real classic piece of the Swing community.

The California Routine was choreographed by Frankie Manning for the Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers. You can see an early version of the routine in the video Spirit Moves

We present here a version that we most often use when the occasion arises. It might vary from other versions that you may come across.

You’ll find individual instructional videos of the moves by clicking on the names during the video

What do you think of this video? Do you dance it differently? Feel free to send us feedback and to comment on the videos.

Patrick & Natasha
