This DVD includes:

  - History of the Dance
  - Breakdown of 26 steps

The Tranky Doo is a routine that was performed by a chorus girl in the 1940’s at Club De Lisa in Chicago.

Dancers took this routine and added their own flair and other steps to create an amazing routine with many vernacular jazz steps.

On this DVD are the steps danced by Frankie Manning when the Congaroo Dancers were playing at Club De Lisa. FRANKIE MANNING choreographed this version of the Tranky Doo.

Frankie shared these steps with many dancers and others created their own sequence. THE SPIRIT MOVES is another popular version (also available on our website).

By learning the TRANKY DOO (both versions) you will add a large array of Jazz steps to your Lindy repertoire.

Joel encourages you to learn the steps and the sequence well enough to make it your own and add your own flair!
