Frim Fram is 17 years old! We don't know when that happened, either!
To celebrate, we invite you all to come dance on us — admission is free for all, though the drop-in lesson will still be $5. We will be raising funds for the Frankie Manning Foundation, so please consider making a generous donation that evening!
Music: we will be taking requests all night. Leave your requests in the comments so Ryan Swift
, Music Coordinator and DJ for the evening can make sure he has the right version of bananaphone for you!
Dance contest! We will be hosting our traditional strictly dance contest. No need to sign up in advance, but arrive that evening by 9:45 pm to sign up. The prizes and judges are spectacular, see below for more details!
We will have red velvet cake to celebrate!
Discounts on drinks at the bar for anyone wearing their brand new Frim Fram pin!
Here is the rundown:

Dance Contest Format:
Our contest is a strictly, meaning that you and your partner will enter together and dance to music that we choose.
During the first round of the contest, our Competition DJ Ryan Swift
will play a few tunes of varying tempos and feels for you to dance to with your partner and the judges will tap out those who will not be moving on to the final
The Final Round will be a spotlight dance for 5 couples. Each couple will dance to tunes of similar tempos for you to show your stuff. We will end with an All-Skate to break any ties or sway the minds of the judges.
\What are we looking for? Frim Fram is not looking for flash or fancy or air steps and definitely not choreographed bits. We are looking #1 for partners that are:
1. Dancing with each other (Lead/Follow)
2. Dancing to the music
3. Having fun
