Denver-based Lindy Hop swing dancers Tiffiny Wine and Ceth Stifel perform an original radio dance titled "Now You Has Jazz" in the CPR Performance Studio.

The duo choreographed an original Lindy Hop dance titled "Now You Has Jazz" for Colorado Public Radio's Radio Dances project

The name of the dance comes from a song by jazz great Louis Armstrong, which is also featured in the performance. Wine and Stifel also pay tribute to Lindy Hop legend Frankie Manning, whose opening quote describes the first time he went to the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem.

With the help of "This American Life" host Ira Glass and dancer-choreographers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, we will present a selection of pieces from our Radio Dances project during the inaugural episode of CPR's new arts show on Friday, March 7 at 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
