Beantown Camp

In tribute to Frankie Manning and in celebration of his 100th birthday this year, Beantown Camp 2014 will be dedicated to Frankie and all that he gave us. Frankie was an incredibly special person and we were honored to have him be a part of Beantown for many years. We are grateful that so many people got to meet him, take class with him, hear his stories and Shim Sham with him. We’ll always cherish all of the wonderful times and remember his warmth, spirit and that infectious big laugh. Frankie really could light up a room as he spread joy everywhere he went. As we keep Frankie in our hearts, we’ll endeavor to carry on his legacy as best we can.

This year Beantown had the most ever competitors and the highest level of competition. As usual, a very supportive Beantown crowd were there to enthusiastically cheer on all the competitors. Congratulations to the winners and to all the participants!
