Solo Jazz workshop: Trickeration 2 (The Queen Swings Basie)
Trickeration: a must-know for every lindy hopper and jazz dancer!
The choreography was created by the one and only Queen of Swing, Miss Norma Miller, a member of the original Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, and founder of Norma Miller’s Dancers.
Trickeration was originally used for auditioning new members to Norma Miller’s Dancers. In 2016 Norma shared a second version of this routine, later called “Queen Swings Basie”.
The routine was performed to music by the great Chester Whitmore.
Your guide through the later version is Yana Sanamyantz. Yana was fortunate to learn from Norma and Chester and perform this routine for her when it was first introduced.
