February 28, 2015 – Calling All Jitterbugs! Dancing With Class Family Workshop
Clap and dance along at this interactive family story time and movement workshop! Learn the dance steps that go along with the new book, Jitterbugs! by Margot Toppen and illustrated by Karen Light, two Chicago area teaching artists. Jitterbugs! is an exciting picture book that will entertain children ages 2-10 with its scat rhythm under-tone and fast-moving story about two very different bugs who triumph through their unlikely dance partnership.
The story Jitterbugs! is inspired by real-life 1930s Lindy Hop dancers George Snowden (“Shorty George”) and Beatrice Gay (“Big Bea”) who used their height difference to their advantage to win contests at places like the famed Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, New York. This dance-along story re-casts George and Bea as adorable and engaging “Jitterbugs.” Young children and their families will love to dance along with the bugs in this fully interactive family dance workshop, while discovering that moving together can be a fun and healthy family activity. PLUS you’ll be treated to a special “swingin'” performance by local youth.
