The Minnie Dippers
Welcome to Swing-Out Edmonton's all-levels performance team, the Minnie Dippers! Named after the distinguished Lindy Hop move popularized by the late and great ambassador of the dance itself, Frankie Manning, The Minnie Dippers appropriately encapsulates our core values of respect, inclusivity, community, appreciation for the African American origins of the dances we enjoy, and advancement of our members' skills in Lindy Hop, Charleston, Collegiate Shag, Solo Jazz, general performance, and more.
To us, nothing is more fulfilling than seeing people's breakthroughs in conquering challenging yet accessible choreography and the camaraderie and friendships that form as we work together toward common goals in a team environment.
Practices normally run from 7:45pm-9:00pm on Thursdays. Our main focus is typically learning original routines (choreographed by the coaches). All dance levels welcome and encouraged! As well, questions are also always welcome and encouraged, and we strive to be available to help everyone experience success!
Finally, the team is FREE to join, though purchase of a SOE membership may be required. Our Open House practice for Fall 2023 will be on Thursday, September 28th. If you'd like to learn more about the team or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our coaches will be happy to follow up with you.
