Steven Mitchell

Steven Mitchell started his dance career by studying Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Ballroom and Hip Hop dance in both Los Angeles and New York. He started Lindy Hoppin/Swing Dancing in 1978-1979, with his partner Erin Stevens. In 1982, Al Minns was convinced to start teaching Lindy Hop at the Sandra Cameron Dance Center in New York City. Californian dancers Erin Stevens and Steven Mitchell flew to New York City to take classes with him in 1983 and 1984. When Al Minns died in 1985, they learned about Frankie Manning through Bob Crease, a board member of the New York Swing Dance Society. They visited Frankie Manning in 1986 and are credited with convincing him to begin instructing Lindy Hop. Erin Stevens and Steven Mitchell helped spread Lindy Hop to California and other locations within the US. With Frankie Manning out of retirement, he continued where Al Minns left off at the Sandra Cameron Dance Center. Eventually the demand for his dance instruction increased and Frankie Manning started to travel and teach worldwide spreading his joy of Lindy Hop.

Steven Mitchell performed with the most famous big bands, like Count Basie, Harry James or Cab Calloway. He was a star guest in American talk shows and danced for President Clinton in the White House. From the 1980's, he performed with the leading Swing (Lindy Hop) dancer Frankie Manning on a regular basis (until Frankie's death one before a last year). He has workshops worldwide, and frequently performs as a singer too. His strong presence on stage enchants his audience all around the world.
