The Shim Sham, originally a tap routine, is a popular vintage solo jazz choreography reinvented in the 1930s by one of Lindy Hop's founders, Frankie Manning. It was a popular finale to the social dances at the Harlem Ballroom in the 30s, and remains a staple of social swing dances worldwide. If you have ever attended a local Chicago swing dance you have probably seen a group of people rush the floor to do the Shim Sham during a band break!
