Chazz Young

Chazz Young started out dancing at young age in the at the time famous Mary Bruce Dancing School in Harlem, New York City. When leaving the school in 1949, he joined the Norma Miller Dancers and later on Norma Miller and Her Jazzmen. The troupes toured all over the world for many years performing the Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz, Tap and other kind of dances popular at the time. When old-school show business declined in the 1960s, Chazz had to change direction of his career, now performing more traditional jobs. At around the same time he started to teach tap dancing on the side, and when the revival of the Lindy Hop started to pick up some speed in the late 1980s, Chazz teamed up with his father, the legendary Frankie Manning, forming a spectacular duo dedicated to the art of vernacular American jazz dancing. Today Chazz lives in Las Vegas, working at the Austin Dancing School and still travelling the world passing on swing dancing to a younger generation. His gentle and patient nature combined with his high quality tap dance skills have no doubt put him in a unique and in demand position among today's new generation of swing dancers.
